So you want to bake too?

It seems a popular request to post last weekend's Apple Pie and Malva poeding recipies - so without further delay the malva poeding - will do the apple pie when I have a few minutes again)

My mom's malva poeding - it makes a nice moist and saucy poeding - serve with custard or vanilla ice cream
 Pre heat the oven to 180 deg C (356 F) and grease a oven proof dish of medium size.
Ingredients for dough:
20 ml (4 teaspoons) butter
250 ml (1 cup) caster sugar
2 eggs
12,5 ml (2 and a half teaspoons) apricot preserve/ jam
5 ml (1 teaspoon) baking soda
125 ml milk (half a cup)
5 ml brown vinegar (1 teaspoon)
250 ml (1 cup) cake flour, sifted with a pinch of salt.

Cream the butter and sugar. Mix eggs in one by one. Add apricot jam. Mix baking soda into the milk and add the vinegar. Add to the butter mix in turns with the sifted flour. Bake for approx. 45 minutes until a knife comes out clear.

In the meantime, make the sauce:
250 ml (1 cup) pouring cream
180 ml (3/4 cup) sugar
125 grams butter (4 oz)
125 ml (1/2 cup) boiling water
5ml (1 teaspoon) vanilla essence
Mix all together and heat until boiling. Pour hot over baked pudding as you remove from the oven.

Hope you enjoy it!
