Yield - this recipe serves 6 people.

Recipe ingredient:

For the sponge:

• 1 Cup flour, 125g

• 1 Tbs bicarbonate of soda

• 1 Cup sugar 250g

• 1 Tbs apricot jam

• 1Tbs vinegar

• 1 Tbs melted butter

• 1 Cup milk 250ml

For the sauce:

• 1/2 Cup cream 125ml

• 1/2 Cup milk 125ml

• 1 Cup sugar 250g

• 1/2 Cup hot water 125ml

• 1/2 Cup butter 125g

Baking method:

1. Set the oven at 180°C

2. Grease, with butter, an ovenproof glass or porcelain container approximately 30CM x 20CM x 5CM. Do not use an aluminum, enamel or any container.

3. Cut a piece of aluminum foil to cover it while the pudding is in the oven and grease it well with butter on one side.

4. Sift the flour and bicarbonate into a bowl and stir in the sugar.

5. In another bowl beat the egg very well and add the remaining ingredients [excluding those for the sauce] one by one, beating well between each addition.

6. Using a spoon beat the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.

7. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish, cover with the foil, greased side down and bake for 45-minutes in the present oven until well risen and brown and for a further 5-minutes without the foil if not sufficiently brown. If not sufficiently baked the dessert will not take up the sauce making it stodgy inside.

8. When the pudding is almost done, heat the ingredients for the sauce, ensuring that you melt all the sugar and butter.

9. When the pudding is done, remove from the oven, take off the foil and pour over the sauce. The pudding will take up all the sauce.

10. Serve hot, warm or at room temperature, though warm is best, with a little thin cream or vanilla custard.
