I appreciate Sarien for introducing me to such a wonderful sweet dessert of South Africa. Never leave South Africa without tasting traditional pudding. Its rich with milk and sugar. If you are a good Gulab jamoon eater, then you definitely have to try this.
Something about Malva pudding
It is a dutch origin usually served with ice cream, cream or custard. The main ingredients being apricot jam, it caramelizes and gives a spongy texture to pudding.
My family loves malva pudding so much that I feel South African now.

Here is the recipe!
Sugar - 125ml
Egg- 1
Apricot Jam - 25ml
Cake Flour - 250ml
Baking powder - 5ml
Baking soda (Bicarbonate soda) - 5ml
Milk - 250ml

Sugar - 125ml
Butter - 25ml
Vanilla essence - 5ml
Boiling water - 125ml
Milk - 250ml

Preheat oven to 180 C
Beat Sugar and Egg until creamy
Stir Apricot Jam, Mix well
Sift flour, Baking powder and salt, add it to egg mixture, mix well.
Add milk and baking soda (give it a stir) to egg mixture.
Make sure you add milk-soda mixture and flour one after the other making it a good consistency with no lumps formation.

Transfer to butter lined tray and bake it for 40-45 minutes or until skewer inserted comes out clean.
Mix all ingredients under 'Sauce' and boil it for 5 minutes.
As soon as the pudding is taken out from oven, pour sauce all over it.
Allow it to soak and serve hot.

Preparation time - 25 minutes
Baking time - 45 minutes
Serves- 5-6 people
