1/1 Photo of Sportsman's Pudding
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!

- 2Using a 2-quart oven dish, spray with nonstick spray.
- 3Stir the soda into the milk.
- 4Mix the rest of the batter ingredients in the order given, add the milk, and mix very well until the batter is smooth.
- 5Ladle 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.
- 6While it bakes, mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a pot, and stir until boiling.
- 7When 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.
