Malva Pudding

The welcome from the Kosi Forest Lodge team included South Africans' favourite dessert - Malva pudding. It's a back cooking/travel show! The experience left us ravenous and ready for a feast of hearty dishes.

Yields : about 6 portions

Ingredients :

200 g White Sugar

2 Whole Eggs

15 ml Apricot Jam

150 g Cake Flour

5 ml Bicarbonate of Soda

Pinch Salt

15 g Butter

5 ml Vinegar

100 ml Milk

Sauce :

200 ml Cream

50 g Butter

150 g Sugar

100 ml Hot Water

Method :

1) Beat the sugar and eggs very well until light and creamy

2) Add apricot jam

3) Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt and set aside

4) Melt the butter and vinegar together and then add to milk

5) Alternatively add the milk mixture and the flour mixture to the egg mixture

6) Put mixture into an oven tray (18 x 22cm) and bake at 180 ̊ C for 30 minutes. Take the foil off and bake for a further 15 minutes
