SOUTH AFRICAN WAR PUDDING
Oorlogpoeding

I believe this pudding had it's origin during the Anglo-Boer war, when certain foods were in short supply.

Ingenuity prevailed and this is a delicious dessert which is very easy to make

Pudding ingredients

500ml (2 cups) stale breadcrumbs
125ml (½ cup) milk
225g (8oz) sugar
170g (6 oz) raisins
60ml (¼ cup) water
15ml (1 tbsp) butter
40ml (2½ tbsp) tapioca
5ml (1 tsp) bicarbonate of soda

To make the pudding

Place the tapioca in a bowl, add the milk and soak overnight

Preheat oven to 350oF [175oC]

Mix the bicarbonate of soda with the water

Stir in the sugar and continue stirring until it dissolves fully.

Add the breadcrumbs and let rest for 15 minutes while the breadcrumbs soak up the water

Add the milk and tapioca. Mix well

Melt the butter and stir into the mixture

Add raisins and blend in well

Pour the mixture into a greased oven proof dish

Bake for approximately 40 minutes

Test the pudding with a thin skewer, which should come out clean

Remove the dessert from the oven and serve immediately with hot custard.

This South African War pudding tastes great and makes a fast economical dessert
