2015-09-24 06:00

With only 20 minutes to prepare and one hour to cook, the dessert will be sure to have you braaiing more often.



• ½ cup white sugar

• 1 egg

• 1½ Tbp apricot jam (any jam, or even syrup will work)

• 1 cup cake flour

• 1 tsp baking powder

• A pinch of salt

• 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

• 1 cup milk


• ¼ cup butter

• 1 cup sugar

• ½ cup boiling water

• 1 cup amarula

• A pinch of salt



With a wire whisk or egg beater, beat together the sugar and eggs. The mixture needs to be creamy and pale, so be patient and strong and beat it for as long as it takes. This step ensures a light, fluffy pudding and is well worth the effort.

Add the jam, flour, baking powder and salt, stir in until well blended.

Pour in the milk, sprinkle over the bicarb, and quickly whisk it altogether.

Pour the batter into the small cast-iron baking pot, cover with the lid and place over moderate coals, and pile some hot coals onto the lid of the pot as well.

Bake for an hour or until golden brown and a sharp knife or skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.


Melt the butter in a pot over the fire, then stir in all the other ingredients.

Heat through, but do not boil.

Pour slowly over the pudding, allowing it soak in thoroughly.

Serve with ready-made custard or whipped cream
