For the Malva Pudding:

2. In a separate bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar.


3. Once pale, light and airy, add the eggs one at a time.


4. Beat well after each addition.


5. Add the apricot jam and vinegar and mix well.


6. Add the sifted dry ingredients and the Nestle Ideal milk to the creamed mixture and fold together until just combined.


7. Pour the batter into the prepared dish and bake for 30 minutes until a skewer is inserted and comes out clean. 




1. 10 minutes before the Malva is done, add all the sauce ingredients to a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring continuously and making sure the sugar is dissolved. Simmer for 5 minutes. Pour over the Malva as it is removed from the oven and let it seep in.
