February 23, 2012 in Braai recipes
I have a new favourite food to cook on a braai fire – any sort of sweet, yummy dessert! Like this malva pudding with a twist – amarula sauce. My freaking word, it was AMAZING! But it should come with a warning, because it was WICKEDLY boozy, people :D
Malva Pudding (malva is Afrikaans for marshmallow, which describes the pudding well - light and spongy), is possibly the most traditional of South African puddings. Every home has a favourite recipe, passed down through the family, and nearly every restaurant in SA will have a malva pudding on the dessert menu.
This recipe has two twists – it’s baked over the braai coals (although I suspect that’s how it was made originally, by SA’s first caravaners – the Voortrekkers), and the rich creamy sauce is made with Amarula. It is easy to make, and quite delicious, and is just as easy to bake in the oven (bake at 180 deg C until golden brown, before pouring the sauce over whilst still hot).

Have a great day, people!
