Malva pudding

This is soooo good and one of my all time favourite dessert recipes. Malva pudding is more of a winter dessert but if you have family that love food as much as we do and rich, hot, tasty desserts(not for weight watchers) that will take weeks of exercise to work off are appreciated not feared then this is for you. (6 people)

What you need

1 cup castor sugar
2 eggs (room temp)
1 tablespoon smooth apricot jam
1 ¼ cups cake flour
1 teaspoon bicarb of soda (5ml)
pinch salt
2 tablespoons butter (30ml)
1 tablespoon vinegar (15ml)
125ml milk

The Sauce

250ml Cream
125ml butter
125ml sugar
125ml water/Orange juice/Sherry/Brandy

The process

Heat your oven to 190 Celsius.

Beat castor sugar and eggs until fluffy then beat in apricot jam until you have a nice creamy consistency

Sift dry ingredients into separate bowl.

    I do enjoy your recipes,, thanks. How long in advance can I make Malva pudding for a functions? And is doubling up ingredients successful or should I make one batch at a time? It’s for around 50 people!!

      Hi, you can make it well in advance and even freeze it or chill for a few days. Just be sure to let it thaw to room temp before putting in the oven again and cover with foil to heat then pour over the sauce. 🙂

    Not very easy reading. Agree with Graham and also it states “Melt butter in a small pot on a medium heat and add vinegar and milk, then add to the sifted ingredients along with the Milk “. So you are saying add milk twice. Please proof read before posting. Highly frustrating when you are a first time baker

      Hi Jay, sorry about that, I have amended the recipe to read as follows, “Melt butter in a small pot on a medium heat and add vinegar and milk, then add to the sifted ingredients to the milk mixture and give it a good mix” Happy days G

    The 4th para in the process doesn’t read right? You talk about eggs one at a time, yet eggs are already beaten?
