Amarula Malva Pudding


20150211_124822(0)_resizedMalva Pudding with cream sauce is a traditional favorite in South Africa and this recipe has the added touch of South Africa’s favorite liqueur as well.  Amarula is a smooth, creamy liqueur exported around the world. The combination of flavors  results in a mouth watering finish to any meal.

Quantity: 8 x 8 pan or 9 inch round pan
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Pudding Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sugar

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup cream (plus 1/3 cup if not using amarula)
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Add egg and sugar to bowl and whip together till creamy, add jam and sugar stirring till combined.  Add flour, baking soda and salt.  Mix well on medium speed. Slowly pour in the milk.  When combined add the vinegar and whip a bit more.  Pour into greased baking baking dish,  cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes.
