Malva pudding, a comforting South African dessert

I have attempted to recreate a marvellously comforting winter pudding made by Jeannette, the housekeeper at the La Plaisante estate. Malva pudding is a classic South African dish, similar to sticky toffee pudding. Out of the rainbow that is South African cooking, the malva pudding comes from the Netherlands, but on African farms, it is often served on Christmas Day, middle of the summer for them. Go to for the recipe and more info!

  1. That sounds delicious. I had something that looked similar to this at a restaurant last week. I don't remember what it was called, but I loved it. If this is anything like it, it sounds delicious. I will have to try making it for sure.


I would love to hear what you think of this post! I try to reply to every comment (if there is a delay, I am probably away from an internet connection or abroad)
