This is a recipe from South Africa (Zambia, Angola, Zimbabwe, etc.), but they don't know whether or not
it originated there. "Heerlike Poeding" (pronounced "here-lick-a pudding") literally means "Delicious Pudding"
in Afrikaans. This is not a dessert to be served at refined dinner parties. However, it is a truly
delicious baked pudding in the blue collar tradition that is perfect for hearty appetites on cold,
wintry days. It's easy to make, too.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons apricot jam
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 egg
- pinch of salt (about ¼ to ½ teaspoon)
- Beat egg and sugar.
- Add rest of ingredients except milk.
- Mix well, then add milk and mix well again (the mixture will be very liquid, but that's okay)
- Bake for one hour at 350 °F in a *deep* uncovered casserole dish—say about 7 to 8 inches square or round and 3 or 4 inches deep.
- Just before the hour is up, prepare the following syrup: ½ cup boiling water 1 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ¾ cup sugar 2 tablespoons butter or margarine bring the syrup to the boil, then pour it into the dish, while the pudding is still hot from the oven.
- Let stand for a few minutes before serving.
