Ricoffy & Cremora Malva Puddings

Serves 12

Hands-on time: 20 minutes

Hands-off time: 10-12 minutes


½ tbsp margarine

1½ tbsp apricot jam

⅓ cup dark brown sugar

3 tbsp NESCAFÉ Ricoffy

1 large egg

½ tsp white vinegar

3 tbsp NESTLÉ Cremora Original

1¼ cups cake flour

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp cornflour

1 tbsp custard powder

*Microwave cooking times may vary due to wattage; use the timings below as a guide.


1. Preheat the oven to 190°C and grease a 12-hole muffin tin.

2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk the margarine, apricot jam, ¼ cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons NESCAFÉ Ricoffy with an electric beater for 3-4 minutes until combined. Add the egg, vinegar and ¾ cup of water to the bowl and whisk for 1 minute until well combined.

3. Sieve in 2 tablespoons of NESTLÉ Cremora Original, cake flour and bicarbonate of soda. Gently fold the dry ingredients through until just combined. *Chef’s Tip: Cremora adds extra creaminess to the malva pudding!

4. Divide the batter between the muffin tin holes and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. *Chef’s Tip: Prepare the coffee sauce and custard while the puddings bake!

For the Ricoffy sauce:

5. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 cup of boiling water, the cornflour, remaining tablespoon of Ricoffy granules and a tablespoon of sugar and microwave for 1-2 minutes, whisking every 20 seconds until the sauce has thickened. Set aside for later.

For the custard:

6. In another bowl, whisk the custard powder, 1 cup of boiling water and 1 tablespoon of Cremora until dissolved. Microwave the mixture for 30-45 seconds, stirring every 20 seconds, until the custard has thickened. Set aside for later.

7. Immediately as the puddings come out the oven, poke a few holes, with a toothpick, into each pudding. Divide the Ricoffy sauce over the puddings in the muffin tin and allow the puddings to soak up the sauce for about 5 minutes.

8. Serve the mini malva puddings with the creamy custard and ENJOY!
