NATIONAL PUDDING- Nationalepoeding
A South African Sweet Treat

I have absolutely no idea why this particular pudding was named "National Pudding".

It certainly is not the most popular or well known of the South African dessert puddings

Ingredients

For the dough

500ml (2 cups) cake flour
2 eggs at room temperature
30ml (2 tbsp) apricot jam
10ml (2 tsp) baking powder

For the Syrup

500ml (2 cups) sugar
750ml (3 cups) water
15ml (1 tbsp) butter
5ml (1 tsp) vanilla or almond essence

Making the National Pudding

First make the pudding dough

Fold the eggs into the dry ingredients and add a little water to make a dough

Roll out the dough to a thickness of about ¾ inch [ 2 cm ] and spread with the apricot jam

Roll up the dough into a cylinder

Then make the syrup

Place the water in a saucepan and bring to a rolling boil over high heat.

Dissolve the rest of the ingredients in the boiling water to make a syrup.

Remove from the heat.

To make the pudding

Place the rolled cylinder of dough in a long ovenproof dish.

Pour the syrup over the dough

Bake in a preheated oven for one hour at 350oF [ 175oC ]

Serve the pudding hot.

I am sure you will find this South African dessert absolutely delicious, especially if you have a sweet tooth
