I love steamed puddings, and little individual ones are so fun. These are like little steamed carrot cakes, an they fit well into my Pampered Chef glass cups. I really like that with this recipe the puddings steam in the oven rather than on the stove top. You could add raisins or sultanas if you wanted to. From Delicious magazine.

In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, oil, carrot, sugar, eggs, 1tsp vanilla extract and golden syrup. with an electric mixer 2-3 minutes until combined. Stir in walnuts and divide pudding mixture between basins. Cover each basin with a greased circle of baking paper. Fold a single pleat into 6 larger discs of baking paper (to allow for expansion). Place these discs on top of each pudding basin and tie with string.
