CAPE MALAY POTATO PUDDING

This Cape Malay Potato Pudding makes a great alternative to Melktert [Milk Tart] and goes well as a dessert, with stewed dried fruit

This pudding is so good that I am surprised it hasn't taken it's place as a pudding with the same national popularity as the Melk Tert.

Ingredients

15ml (1 tbsp) cake flour
1 litre (4 cups) milk
6 eggs [large]
250ml (1 cup) sugar
500g (1lb 2 oz) small potatoes
125g [4½oz or ½cup] butter
5ml (1 tsp) salt
5ml (1 tsp) vanilla essence
2 drops almond essence
2.5ml (½ tsp ground cinnamon

To make this Cape Malay Potato Pudding

Preheat oven to 350oF [180oC]

Make the cake flour into a thin paste using a little of the milk [about 60ml (4 tbsp) should do it]

Peel and halve the potatoes and boil in a saucepan over high heat until they are soft

Mash the potatoes with half [¼ cup] of the butter

Beat the eggs and add them to the mashed potatoes

Add the sugar, salt, almond and vanilla essence and the ground cinnamon to the potato mixture

Mix well

Last add the milk, flour paste and remaining butter

Mix well

Transfer the mixture to a well greased ovenproof dish

Place on the middle shelf of the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes until the pudding has set and is light golden in color

Cut into pieces and serve the Potato Pudding, as a dessert, with stewed dried fruit

The people known as Cape Malay have had a tremendous influence on the South African culinary scene.

This Potato Pudding is only one example of this
