I currently have a pudding in the varoma...  Trying to cut back on fat, and carbs..  So this is what I have done..  Will let you know what finished result tastes like, but the batter tasted good!
150 gm almonds (skin on) 100 gm SR Flour, rind of lemon, about 40 gm raw sugar, 1 tspn vanilla paste... 
Whizzed on speed 10 until powdery... 
Added 2 eggs, juice of the lemon.. 
Thermie on speed 4 and added enough milk to thin mixture down a bit (about quarter of a cup...)
 I've put mix into a pudding bowl in varoma and steaming for 20 mins on varoma, speed 4... 
I'll post what is tastes like and DH's reaction!  He doesn't know it's my own invention  :P

Yes me too.  It sounds like it would be a good one to do in my Pudding Tin.

Well it was a relative success. When I turned it out I poured some previously made marmalade that hadn't set well over it. We had it with ice cream. Hubby really liked it and had no idea it wasn't full of sugar and refined flour  ;D
Maybe though I could whip an egg white up and fold through to give a bit of lightness.
Or maybe the butterfly would've done the same? It was heavy and rich but tasty.
I would make again  :) but put the marmalade in the base.

Made a chocolate version of these tonight.
Chopped chocolate and then pretty much followed the recipe as suggested (no jam etc)
They were so yummy!

Everyone was impressed and asked for them again. So quick and easy, cook whilst dinner is being eaten. (and as the oven is out of order, don't need the oven, lol).

Thank you so much for this recipe. I know it was posted a long time ago, but it should be said that this is a great recipe. Tried it with golden syrup and the result was light, fluffy and yummy. So easy and so quick. Much better than the little varoma demo puddings. Thank you very much.

Thank you kimmyh. We often have them . Sometimes with jam in the base or golden syrup or often with sultanas in the mixture.

My puddings turned out great, we must be little piggy's though as I make the mix that was suppose to serve 4 and as there was only the three of us I divided it up into three ramekins, I would have been disappointed if it was any smaller LOL. I put about 1 tablespoon of syrup in each and could have put maybe 2. I just added some straight on top as I was serving it. The flavour was divine.

I'm glad that it went well. I'll tell you a secret, there are 3 of us too and we have it as 3 serves.
