In December 2006, Oprah Winfrey’s personal chef Art Smith traveled to South Africa to cook Christmas dinner for the pupils of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls. The big hit of the night was his Malva Pudding. Smith stated that according to Colin Cowie, his hospitality ambassador in South Africa, it was named after a woman called Malva.
Malva Pudding is delicious during the cold winter months because it is usually served hot..
The typical way of serving it is with custard, vanilla ice cream or cream.. I prefer mine piping hot with some custard..for me it´s comfort food at its best.
What makes this pudding so delicious, is the warm sauce you pour over it straight after it has come out of the oven.. a mixture of melted butter, cream and sugar.. the sauce is soaked up in the warm spongue.
