Continuing our culinary education, we took part in the African Fusion Culinary Tour of South Africa and Namibia that was recently offered by Toto Tours and Le Calabash. Alison Bond (pastry chef extraordinaire) showed us her recipe for malva pudding – a spongy, light apricot pudding that was soaked in a buttery sauce. This traditional South African dessert caught everyone’s attention when it was served by Oprah Winfrey’s chef at a fundraising dinner for her girls’ school. Absolutely delicious!
Everything is measured and ready to go.
Eggs and sugar are whipped together.
After adding melted butter, apricot jam and vinegar, milk and flour are added bit by bit.
Remekins are buttered and filled prior to baking.
The rich sauce starts by gently heating the sugar before adding cream and butter.
The final result a mouth-watering dessert that will delight everyone.
