Thank you all (she says bowing deeply). The ramekins I used were 3/4 cup size. I just fitted 4 in the Varoma. I might try making just the one next time. Will have to play with the cooking time.

Welcome back Bron.  Happy catching up-it seems to take ages, but then there is always something new to read.

Thanks Trudy, these are lovely. I make all my biscuits in the TMX now. Usually I just throw everything in and go for it.
We don't like ginger very much so I substituted cocoa and a bit of ginger and mixed spice. They were very popular.

He sounds lovely Thermomixer.

I still find it amazing that the males like TMX's so much. When we had our party we made it very clear to our guests that they were coming so that we could buy one and that they were to ignore all the sales hype. Since then one lot have bought one and one other lot are saving madly.

Desserts / Steamed Pudding using the Varoma
« on: June 19, 2009, 08:20:45 am »
Steamed Pudding:
Serves 4 :
120g self raising flour
60g raw sugar
60g butter or substitute
2 tablespoons jam (or as much as you like)
1 egg
2-3 tablespoons milk
grated lemon rind

Place the flour, sugar, butter,and lemon rind into the bowl.
Mix for 4 seconds on speed 5 until mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
Add the egg and 2 tablespoons milk.
Mix at speed 3 for approximately 10 seconds. If mixture is too thick add the extra milk.
Place jam into each of 4 small greased ramekins.
Carefully place the mixture over the jam.
Place in varoma.
Use 1 litre of water and steam at Varoma temperature for 25-30 minutes. Check with a skewer to see if they are cooked.
Serve with custard, cream and or icecream.


The ramekins I used were 3/4 cup size. I just fitted 4 in the Varoma.
This could be made in just the one dish. It may take longer to steam.
You could put golden syrup instead of the jam or add sultanas to the mixture.

wombleydoo - I tried this out tonight, using Golden Syrup. I love Golden Syrup, so I put about 3/4 of a cup in the bottom of the bowl. Also made it all in one bowl. I put in 1 litre of hot water out of the tap and cooked it for 30mins. Perfect!

CP - Was going to do 2 x golden syrup and 2 x jam, but had put the jam in all 4 ramekins before I remembered!! I would say "dollops" of jam because I am not sure if the 2 tablespoons were for all 4 ramekins or each one (could you please clarify cookie1?), as I thought they were a little dry jam wise for my taste.   My mixture was a bit stiff, so I had to add a splash more milk when required in the recipe, and found that using the back of a spoon to spread evenly into the ramekin made it easier for them to spread out whilst cooking. Didn't cover them. The skewer test was important as they can look "underdone" just viewing thru the Varoma lid. Thank you C1, family enjoyed these and will make again.

cookie1 - CP63, you are right-you do need more jam. The first time I made them I only used the small amount and the family wanted to know if we were on jam rations.  I sometimes leave out the jam and add sultanas to the mixture. When we had that as kids we called it "spotted dog". I believe the correct name was different though.
If you like peel, that's nice too. Then perhaps a little orange essence in the custard.

JD -  Your ramekins must be smaller than mine as I could only fit 3 in or it may have been because I wanted to put the tray on top with some vegies to steam at the same time. I put the 4th little fella up there with the vegies but he wasn't too happy being separated from his mates and didn't cook properly.  I just zapped him for 1 minute in the microwave - that fixed him.  Kept the 2 I wanted for tea warm in the thermoserver whilst I made the custard. Made them with jam tonight & will try golden syrup next time - very nice. 
I've also stewed some apples then used this recipe to finish them off.  Worked a treat and big enough for DH and me to share one for dessert.

schmendy - Mmmm, thanks Cookie1! We made these tonight and they were delicious!

JuJu - Just made these in little Japanese teacups and they turned out beautifully.

Nik2WIN - That was delicious - I made one big one, with golden syrup!  As an aside, 1/2 way through (OK I'd just started) I remembered I had no eggs.  It worked just as well without!

Jaclom - 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.

Update - 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.
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.

Zan - Made a chocolate version of these tonight. Chopped chocolate and then pretty much followed the recipe as suggested (no jam etc).

Kimmyh - 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. They were so yummy!

Lovely-lindaloo - I have some lovely organic ginger syrup in the pantry, so going to give it a go.
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 made steamed puddings and custard for dinner last night and a batch of choc chip/coffee biscuits. Will put the recipe for the Steamed puddings in desserts.  It is an adaption from the Golden Wattle cookbook.

Thanks Thermomixer, that's more or less what I thought I'd do. I feel better now that someone has verified it.
How's the little thermomixlet? Blooming I guess as little ones do.

It sounds beautiful. But as you say, not good for those of us that fight 'the bulge'.

Thanks for the translation Karen.

Does anyone have a tried and true TMX recipe for cauliflower pickle please? I am being lazy and asking before I convert my CWA book recipe. Thanks
I love chutneys but DH prefers this.

I'm dumb and speak no other languages (I was a maths and science girl) What is it please? It sounds very interesting. :P

Yes, I covered it. It has a lovely taste. Hope you enjoy it. :)

I highly recommend the proper bag for the TMX. I bought one to carry mine in and it was perfect. Mine didn't fly, only went over lots of bumpy roads. The bag is expensive ($120) but I felt it was well worth it.

Gee Rudi, you must have really wanted a Thermomix. Welcome to the group of enthusiasts.
