Malva pudding is a huge favorite in South Africa. If you go to a wedding in South Africa, the chances are good there’ll be malva pudding served.
If you go to a dinner party chances are good there’ll be malva. It’s served in many restaurants. So you get the idea, it’s kind of a big deal in SA culture.
In terms of a comparison, I would say it’s pretty close to a sticky toffee pudding.
It’s a sponge cake made with apricot jam and then you poke a bunch of holes in it and pour over a creamy sauce. The sponge soaks it up and the result is a rich, moist, sticky, caramel pudding!
And it’s served hot, so it’s an awesome dessert for cold nights.
Even though it is VERY saucy, as you make a big batch of sauce to pour over it, it’s usually served with custard, whipped cream or ice cream as well.
I mean bring on the richness!
So I wanted to make a vegan malva pudding, which I did, and it came out wonderfully! Really, it’s malva! I can’t taste any difference to the malva puddings I ate growing up, so veganizing this dish has taken nothing away from the flavor at all.
You will love this pudding, it’s sticky, rich, moist, caramel-y, warm, saucy and sweet.
