    Zurie's Note:

    This simple, delicious dessert was originally named after a legendary South African rugby player! It's the kind of pudding which gets passed on from cook to cook over the years. Delicious, saucy and fattening!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 teaspoon baking soda (5 ml bicarbonate of soda)
    • 1/2 cup milk (125 ml)
    • 7 ounces self-rising flour (200 g self-raising flour)
    • 3 1/2 ounces sugar, granulated (100 g white sugar)
    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • 2 tablespoons apricot jam (the finely cooked preserve)
    • 2 tablespoons very soft butter
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt



    1. 1
      Heat oven to 350 deg F/180 deg Celsius.
    2. 2
      Using a 2-quart oven dish, spray with nonstick spray.
    3. 3
      Stir the soda into the milk.
    4. 4
      Mix the rest of the batter ingredients in the order given, add the milk, and mix very well until the batter is smooth.
    5. 5
      Ladle the batter into the prepared dish (it might look a bit large but it needs to be) and bake about 30 - 35 minutes, until well risen and nicely brown on top.
    6. 6
      While it bakes, mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a pot, and stir until boiling.
    7. 7
      When the pudding comes out of the oven, carefully and slowly pour the hot sauce over the pudding. Leave to stand a while so the sauce can be absorbed.
    8. 8
      Serve warm or lukewarm, with thin custard or ice cream.

      Very good, but talk about a heart attack waiting to happen! Paul Dean would be proud of you *2 sticks of butter* !!! This is not a sweet pudding. But what I think keeps you coming back for more is the richness. DD could not stay out of it last night and neither could I!! I used corn syrup instead of sugar and took away a little of the milk. I feel it came out pretty good with the substitution. I made this for *Zaar World Tour 4* 2008 round 3 the *African Dessert Challenge* I'm playing on the team *Tastebud Tickling Travelers* Go team go!
