Masterchef Challenge --- Lime Ginger Steamed Pudding

I was given another lot of limes. I went browsing the web for inspiration and came across some gorgeous looking steamed puddings. What a better time to make these than a cold winter night. To my delight Masterchef contestants were given a steamed pudding challenge last night. This is my version adapted from a basic pudding recipe.

125g butter, softened
½ cup caster sugar
1 grated lime zest
2 tsp ground ginger
2 eggs
1½ cup of self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
5 tbsp of lime juice
½ cup milk
100g glazed ginger, roughly chopped
1/3 cup of marmalade jam

1.          Cream butter and sugar.
2.          Add eggs and lime zests.
3.          Fold in flour, baking powder, adding milk and lime juice in between batches.
4.          Grease individual ramekins or pudding basin.
5.          Place the glazed ginger and scoops of jam at the bottom of ramekins.
6.          Scoop the pudding mix over it to ¾ full.
7.          Cover with foil.
8.          Place in a steamer and steam for 45 minutes or place in a water bath in 180°C oven for 35 minutes.
9.          Loosen the sides and turn them over to serve. 
10.      Serve warm with custard or ice cream.

I didn't grease the bottom properly hence it came out ragged.
