Lesley's Malva Pudding with Caramel Sauce

Malva pudding is a distinctly South African baked pudding. It should be baked until its almost chewy on the outside, and then smothered in its sauce (I make a bastardised caramel for no good reason other than I like it) and then served with either custard, whipped cream or ice cream. Strawberries are the best condiment in my opinion. Its actually best the day after baking.

Instructions

  1. 1Cream sugar and marge
  2. 2Add vinegar, vanilla, jam and eggs, mix well
  3. 3Sift flour, baking powder and bicarb, add to wet mixture
  4. 4Add milk
  5. 5You now have options: You can make one big baked pudding, or, my favourite, put it into those rubber muffin moulds, and bake at 180 degress centigrade until its a deep caramel brown colour. Muffins take about 40 minutes so the big dish will take a while longer
  6. 6While its baking, add sugar and butter into a pot over medium heat on the stove. You can also put in a little vanilla extract at this stage if you like
  7. 7Mix once butter has melted but then leave it alone completely until all the sugar has dissolved and its bubbling like mad
  8. 8Add a little cream, milk or water to thin it down, (my current administration likes it thick), and pour, while still warm over cooked pudding, into which you’ve poked a few holes. Allow some time for it to soak in
