Africhef for great African Recipes and African Cooking


This is a very easy but very tasty recipe from Swaziland

I have no idea why a pudding named after Queen Mary should have originated in Swaziland

However, it's a really great tasting pudding which is why I had no hesitation including it on Africhef

Pudding Ingredients

½ lb [225g] cake flour
5oz [140g] butter
¾ cup [180ml] milk
¾ cup [180ml] golden syrup
2 eggs [ at room temperature ]
1 tsp [5ml] baking powder
a good pinch of salt

To make the pudding

Beat the eggs in a bowl

Place the flour into a mixing bowl and rub in the butter

Stir in the syrup

Beat in the eggs and milk

Finally mix in the baking powder and salt, making sure they are well distributed throughout the mixture

Place the pudding mixture in a greased oven proof pudding bowl or similar and place this container in a larger pot filled with water 2/3 up the side of the pudding bowl

Steam for 1 hour ensuring that the larger pot does not run out of water

Remove the pudding from the oven and serve immediately with additional golden syrup

Obviously the Queen Mary Pudding is very sweet and certainly not recommended for anyone trying to lose weight

If you have a sweet tooth you should love this pudding
