Monthly Mystery Munchies #14 with Gen

Think sweet, spongy, creamy and something of Afrikaan origin and I bet you that this Malva Pudding is a sure-fire recipe to whet your appetite.  

Gen, Author of Eat, Play , Clove has decided to share her Step-Mom’s authentic recipe for June’s Monthly Mystery Munchies challenge as we decided that it was apt that while I cooked up a Dutch recipe, Gen would do an Afrikaans one.

Just look at this:

Doesn’t that look delectable and something you’d want to sink your teeth into?! I know I would and when it comes to pudding, no one can share mine! OK, you can have a little, teeny-weeny bite. Nothing more!

In Gen’s words:

Afrikaans is a derivative of Dutch, with the early Settlers in South Africa being Dutch. I chose malva pudding, which is a sweet, spongy pudding of Cape Dutch origin. It’s topped (flooded) with an abundance of creamy, sweet sauce. A lot of sweet in this one, which certainly appeases my sugar addiction.

I can’t take credit for this recipe, as much as I’d like to! My stepmom, Michele, is a phenomenal cook, and she gave me her recipe a few years ago. Obsessed. This is my favourite hot pudding, and the fact that it’s served with custard and/or ice cream (why not both?) makes it decadent and indulgent, and one for the recipe books. It’s easy, folks, mission-free, and moreish.

I love it that it has apricot jam in there and that it can be served with custard and/or ice-cream or both. This one is high on my list to try and if you haven’t gone to Gen’s yet, I urge you to mosey over to her blog now and leave her some love for her brilliant  Malva Pudding Recipe.

Thank you, Gen for the awesome share! This is a fabulous recipe to try! xxx.
