Malva Pudding, South African Baked Dessert
70 mins (prep 25, cooking 45)
13 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is more delicious than the sum of its parts! It's a real traditional oldie. RETESTED ON 22 Oct 07: After reading the reviews, I have just made this again. I cut down a little on the sugar in the sauce (it was 5 oz originally), but it should actually be a sweet pudding!! The sauce was quite enough to moisten the entire pudding -- it should not be dripping with sauce, as you can see in the photographs. Do not serve immediately, but let it stand, keeping warm, to give the sauce a chance to soak in properly. Real cold-weather comfort food. It's rich, so a little goes a long way, and this pudding yields up to 6 servings. This winter you must try this!
