  • 1 cup full-cream milk
  • 1 t bicarbonate of soda
  • 125 g brown sugar
  • 1 t salt
  • 250 g flour
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 1 t brown vinegar
  • 2 t blueberry jam
  • 1 t baking powder
  • custard, for serving
  • mixed berries, for serving
  • For the syrup:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup cream
  • 125 g sugar
  • 60 g butter
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • a handful blueberries

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Mix the milk and bicarbonate of soda.
2. In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, salt, flour, egg, vinegar and jam. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and combine. Pour into 5 greased ramekins and bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
3. To make the syrup, place all the ingredients in a small saucepan and boil for 10 minutes.
4. When the puddings are cooked, poke holes into them using a skewer and pour the syrup over the pudding. Decorate with mixed berries. Serve with the custard.

Cook’s note: The malva will look quite blue when mixing, but will turn golden brown when baked. The syrup is a good way to use up berries that have gone a little past their best.

    The malva is fantastic but the consistency of the syrup did not turn out well. I think the water and cream ratio did not work out as intended.
