Sweet, South African Malva Pudding

Traditional South African Malva Pudding, served warm with custard or ice-cream, or both

Malva Pudding is usually served hot with custard or ice-cream and is a typical South African dessert. Well, actually it is of Dutch origin and is named after the Portuguese wine they paired it with (though others argue it was named after a woman called Malva), but South Africans have made it their own with the unique addition of apricot jam.
