    This South African dessert is a classic. It's sweet, dense and delicious. A pudding batter is baked, then topped with a creamy vanilla flavoured sauce.

    This is a wonderful, The first time I made it for about 100 people, mostly teenagers for an International dinner. Many come and told me how wonderful it was. It can be a little scary as you put it together and the batter looks way to thin, but it will turn out great.  -  11 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I think this is a lovely warm pudding for the winter. I am South African and we often had this pudding for dessert. I would use a little less sugar as it tends to be on the sweet side. Enjoy it.  -  30 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
