is a sweet south african pudding.


Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hr 10 minutes
Serves: 8

Ingredients
FOR THE PUDDING
3/4 cup of castor sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons apricot jam
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 1/3cup of all purpose flour or cake flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
A pinch of salt
1/4 cup of melted butter
1 teaspoon of white vinegar
1/2 cup fresh cream

FOR THE SAUCE
1 1/2 cups cream
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons of golden syrup or maple syrup (optional)
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
1/4 cup water

FOR CREAM ANGLAISE
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup fresh cream
2 egg yolks
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cornflour

Method:
  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
  • Grease an oven-proof casserole dish.You can also use small ramekins to make individual puddings.
  • Using an electric beater, beat the sugar, eggs, jam and vanilla essence.

  • Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into another bowl.
  • In a mug, mix together the melted butter, vinegar, and cream.
  • Using a large metal spoon, fold the sifted dry ingredients into the egg-sugar mixture, alternating with the melted butter-vinegar mixture, until all the ingredients are mixed properly.
  • Spread the mixture into the dish evenly

  • Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, until dark brown, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the pudding comes out clean. The batter will not be brown in colour but after baking, the top will be brown.
  • To prepare the Cream Anglais, heat milk and cream in a saucepan.
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks, sugar and cornflour.
  • Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of hot milk and cream mixture, and mix well.
  • Add this yolk mixture in the milk and cream mixture and cook on a low flame.

  • Keep stirring occasionally until you get a slightly thick consistency.
  • Ten minutes before the pudding is done, prepare the sauce by putting all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan, and bring to the boil.
  • Boil for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the pudding from the oven, prick holes all over it using a skewer or knife and also run the knife around the edges.
  • Then cut the pudding into square pieces while still in the dish.
  • Pour the hot sauce over the hot pudding.

  • Do not hesitate while pouring the sauce on the pudding - at first it seems like the sauce is too much for pudding but within a few seconds all the sauce will be soaked up by the pudding and that will make the pudding moist and melt in your mouth.
  • Allow to cool for 2 to 3 minutes, then serve in bowls.
  • It should be served hot. I served it with Cream Anglais, and you can reheat any leftovers when you want to serve.
