- A large pudding bowl (around 600 ml) or 6 ramekins (around 175 ml) - if you don't have ramekins or pudding bowls, you could always use tea cups or mugs
- Enough saucepans (with lids) to fit these bowls or they can be cooked in shifts You could use the ninja too, but I don't have enough experience with this yet!
- Greaseproof paper
- String & elastic bands
- Tea towels
100g Ground Almonds
40g Coconut Flour
80g Shredded Suet
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 Lemon, zest only
10g Currants (chopped finely)
100ml Unsweetened Almond Milk (or other milk of choice)
5g Butter or Olive Oil, for greasing
Place the ground almonds, coconut flour, shredded suet, sweetener, baking powder, currants and lemon zest into a bowl and mix to combine.
Add the milk and stir to make a soft but crumbly dough.
Grease a pudding bowl (or ramekins) with melted butter or olive oil and line with greaseproof paper.
Spoon the mixture into the bowl or ramekins and gently press it in with your fingertips.
Cover with a piece of folded greaseproof paper.
Put an elastic band to hold this in place. Tie around the edge of this paper also with string to secure it in place.
Place the bowl or ramekins into a large lidded saucepan and fill the pan half to two-thirds of the way up the bowl / ramekins with boiling water.
Put a damp tea towel over the top, completely covering all the ramekins or pudding bowl. It's ok if it drapes in the water.
Cover with the lid, bring to a boil and simmer for one hour. Keep an eye on the water, so that it doesn't boil dry and that it doesn't bubble over the height of the bowl either
I set 1 alarm for 60 minutes and another alarm for every 15 minutes to keep checking on it.
Once cooked, you can leave them to cool in the pan, or pull them out of the pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes, before turning out onto a plate and gently peel off the greaseproof paper.
This pudding heats up really well in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds.
