Malva Pudding
Posted this under the Vegetarian thread as well:

Of the four recipes for Malva pudding that I have tried so far, this has been by far and away the best. The recipe is from the Boschendal wine estate in the Cape (poached from the internet):


1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp. smooth apricot jam
1 cup cake flour
1 tsp. baking soda
Generous pinch of salt
1 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. White vinegar
1 cup milk


1 cup cream
6 oz. butter
1 cup sugar
½ cup hot water

Preheat oven to 350º F. In a mixing bowl, beat egg, sugar and jam together on high for +/- 15 minutes. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, soda and salt. In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter carefully in microwave, then add vinegar and set aside.

Add half of the milk to egg/sugar mixture, and mix together. Then add half the flour mixture, and blend ingredients together. Alternately mix in the rest of the milk, then the rest of the flour mixture. Add butter/vinegar mixture and mix well.

Pour mixture into a pyrex or corningware baking dish (about 8 inches in diameter) and cover with lid or foil and bake for 45-60 minutes. The pudding is cooked when it is a consistent rich brown in color. If it is still pale in the center on top, it will need to cook a little longer.

Melt together the ingredients for the sauce and pour over the pudding as it comes out of the oven. Let stand for several minutes, allowing sauce to soak into baked portion, then serve pudding
I use this one:

Malva Pudding
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C.

200g sugar
2 eggs
15ml (1 tablespoon) apricot jam
150g flour
5ml (1 teaspoon) bicarbonate of soda
a pinch of salt
15g butter
5ml vinegar
100ml milk

For the sauce? (just use cream)
200ml cream
100g unsalted butter
150g sugar
100ml hot water

Beat the sugar and eggs well in a food processor until thick and lemon-coloured, and add the jam.
Sieve together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
Melt the butter and add the vinegar. Add this butter/vinegar mixture and the milk, to the egg mixture alternately with the flour. Beat well and bake in a covered oven- proof dish for 45 minutes.
Melt together the ingredients for the sauce abd pour them over the pudding as it comes out of the oven.
