Why I Love This Recipe

This is the only dessert that I like and as a boy growing up. I always enjoyed eating it at my Aunt's house in South Africa.

Ingredients You'll Need

6 1/2 ounces sugar (3/4 cup, 200 ml, or 180 g)
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon apricot jam
5 ounces all-purpose flour (150 g)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter (a generous tablespoon)
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/3 cup milk

3/4 cup fresh cream (200 ml)
3 1/2 ounces butter (100 g)
3 -5 ounces sugar (90 - 150 g)
1/3 cup hot water (90 ml)
2 teaspoons vanilla essence


Step 1:

Preheat oven to 350 deg F/180 deg Celsius. (NOTE: I find my convection/fan oven very hot. I baked the pudding at 170 deg C and had to turn it down to 160 deg C/325 deg F for fear the pudding might burn. You know your oven -- Adjust accordingly).

Step 2:

Grease an oven dish. I used a 7 x 7 x 1 1/2 inch Pyrex dish. (18 x 18 x 4 1/2 cm)

Step 3:

Beat or whip the sugar and eggs. It's quickest in a food processor, or use electric beaters. Beat until thick and lemon colored, then add the jelly (jam) and mix through.

Step 4:

Melt the butter (don't boil) and add the butter and vinegar to the wet mixture.

Step 5:

Sieve, or simply mix together: the flour, soda and salt.

Step 6:

Add this mixture with the milk to the egg mixture in the processor or mixing bowl. Beat well.

Step 7:

Pour into an oven-proof dish and bake until pudding is brown and well-risen -- depending on your oven and oven dish this will be between 30 - 45 minutes. (Mine was done in 30 minutes this time).

Step 8:

In a pot, melt together the ingredients for the sauce, and stir well.

Step 9:

Pour it over the pudding as soon as it comes out of the oven.

Step 10:

Leave to stand awhile before serving. Serve warm. Because it's rich it does not really need enhancement, but if you want, serve with vanilla ice cream.
