Malva Pudding


  • 1 cup sugar I use fructose
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon apricot jam
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon malt vinegar
  • ½ cup milk

for the sauce:

  • 250 mls cream
  • 100 g butter
  • 150 g maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon hot water


  • preheat the oven to 180? Celsius
  • beat the eggs and sugar until you have a pale yellow frothy consistency
  • add the jam and mix in well
  • in a separate bowl sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt
  • add the milk and the dry ingredients in alternating small batches to the egg mixture sure you mix in each stage properly
  • in a separate bowl melt the butter and once melted add the vinegar and then add to the mixture and mix in properly
  • pour into an oven proof dish and cover with foil
  • bake for 55 minutes until golden brown

to prepare the sauce

  • in a small saucepan melt all the ingredients and pour over the malva pudding as soon as it has come out of the oven
  • you can make some holes in the pudding to make sure all the sauce is soaked in properly


reserve some of the sauce if you want to serve it on the side
