Ok let me live up to my other name!

Imaxines Malva Pudding (we also call it Jan Ellis puding, but dont ask me why it is named after him)


1,5 cups cakeflower (750ml)
0,5 cup milk (125 ml)
1,5 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 table spoons smooth apricot jam
2 eggs
0,5 cup sugar (125ml)
2 table spoons butter
0,5 teaspoon salt.

Melt butter in milk. add sugar and eggs, then mix in the rest of the ingredients. Bake at 180 Celcius for 30 min.

Syrup:
1 cup boilong water
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla essence
1 cup butter (250 grams)
1 cup cream

Boil all together and pour over the warm puding (its better if you make slightly more sauce!)

This makes quite a large pudding. My family will leave top rated restaurants to have this

The malva is ofcourse the at home favourite.

When camping try this:

wrap in tin foil a banana cut in half 9(lenght wise), two to three pieces of milk choclolate and two marshmellows.

Place on braai grid and turn regulary till banana is cooked and chocolate and marshmellow have melted. Eat out of tin foil (it gets messy)

Pop Corn Soup.

You will need one mealie(corn on the cob), one medium sized potatoe and one medium sized onion per person.

Peel the onions and potatoes and cut into cubes,
Cut the corn off the cob.

Boil, along with a stock cube, the potatoes, onions and half the corn until soft then blitz

Microwave the other half of the corn until soft, then add to the blitzed mixture.

It should be thick, but if not use more potatoe next time or thicken with flour.

Serve covered in popcorn..it will please the kids no end!

:hmz: You can also add cubed pumpkin to the potatoe, onion and corn and boil together to give it a slightly different taste.

Pat, we seem to have very similar recipes, just some subtle changes here and there, so I will give the versions I have and leave it up to the mites with the sweet teeth to experiment. :wink: :lol:

Its actual so strange, when I used to work on the Mothers school committee some years ago and we had a function that required large quantities of a similar dish, I would hand out the exact same recipe to maybe 5 women and the end result would always look somehow different and even taste different on occasions too. :roll: :whistle:

ELSA'S APPLE TART.

45ml Butter (or 45 grams) room temp.
250ml castor sugar
2 extra large eggs
250ml, or 1 cup cake flour
5ml Baking powder
pinch salt
60ml milk.
1 x large tin pie apples, can also use fresh apples lightly stewed.

TOPPING

250ml sugar, I use brown now, but its a personal choice. Gives it a more caramel taste.
250ml cream
5ml Vanilla essence

METHOD

Preheat oven to 180 C
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time beating well after every addition.
Sif the flour and BP, salt and fold into creamed mixture, alternating with the milk.
Spoon the batter into a greased container, (it may not look like much at this stage.)and arrange the apple slices on top.
Bake for 30-40 mins.

While the tart is baking, bring the cream and sugar to the boil and simmer gently for 5 minutes. add the vanilla.
Pour over the tart as soon as it comes out the oven.
Serve with either Custard, whipped cream or a scoop of ice-cream.

Enjoy.

Ps. Once I did not have apples and used tinned pears instead, worked perfectedly, and in fact some of the family prefer it to the apples. :wink:

MILK TART.
(A traditional recipe given to me by an Afrikaans family)
This makes one large or 2 smaller tarts, so can be halved for a smaller quantity.

INGREDIANTS. - CRUST

2 cups flour
2 tsp. Baking powder
120g butter, room temp.
100gr. sugar
1 large egg.
salt

FILLING

1 litre of full cream milk
180 gr sugar
30 gr flour
30 gr cornflour/maziena.
30 gr Butter
3 large eggs.
quarter tsp of Almond essence

METHOD

Rub butter into sifted flour and BP till it resembles breadcrumbs.
Add sugar and beaten egg.
Mix to form a stiff dough.
Press into pan, and prick well with a fork, (important)
Bake at 180C for 15 to 20 mins till light brown.

While crust is baking,
Heat milk and butter to boiling point in saucepan.
In a bowl mix tog. cornflour/flour, add eggs, sugar and almond essence.
Slowly add to boiling milk, stirring well all the time.
*A tip is to first add some of the very hot milk to the egg mix. stir and then add it all back in saucepan, eliminates any lumps forming.
Continue stirring till it thickens about 5 mins.

As soon as crust comes out the oven pour the filling in.
Sprinkle generously with cinnamon.

Allow to cool thoroughly or refrigerate before serving.
Enjoy.

Castor sugar is sugar that is more finely groung than regular sugar, somewhere between sugar and icing sugar. When my mom ran out of castor sugar, she used to put ordinary suger in her liquidiser for a while so make it finer
Cornflour/ corn starch and maizena are all the same thing

Here's a bit of cullinary history culled from, believe it or not, my old university's website... The Black Country and Brummagem (Birmingham) are often confused by foreigners (that’s the English, mainly). But here’s a traditional Black Country recipe from Victorian times, designed to coat your ribs – Groaty Pudding. Most brummies won’t touch the stuff!

0.5 lb groats (the hulled grains of various cereals, such as oats, wheat, barley or buckwheat.)
1.5 lbs shin of beef
1lb leeks
2 medium sized onions
1 bay leaf (optional)
Hot water to cover
Salt and Pepper


Cut the beef into bite-size pieces, slice the leeks and onions. Place all the ingredients in a stew jar or casserole dish and bake slowly for at least three hours, longer if possible (tradition suggests up to 16 hours). Serve with crusty bread. A thicker version of this, with more groats and less meat, was all some families could afford. It was spread on bread so that each member could have something warm and filling.

Could you get us (that is..me!) a Yorkshire Pudding and Toad in the Hole recipe please??


Yorkshire Pudding

2 eggs
1 Cup of milk
1 Cup of all purpose flour
tsp salt

Mix well in a blender or processor

Put enough cooking oil or drippings to cover the bottom of a 8x8 pan.
(Or you can use a muffin pan.)
Place in a 400 oven till it is popping hot (spitting)

Remove hot pan (carefully) and pour well blended mixture in it.

Bake at 400 for a half hour....

Should rise up in a crazy pattern (different every time) ;)

I've tried many recipes over the years...this is the easiest!!!

Toad in the hole (batter is similar/same as CC's)

1 c (250 ml) all-purpose flour
2 Eggs
1 c (250 ml) milk
1/2 ts (2.5 ml) salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 lb (900 g) small, fresh pork
-sausages

To make the batter in a blender, combine the flour, eggs, milk, salt and a
few grindings of pepper in the blender jar, and blend at high speed for 2
or 3 seconds. Turn off the machine, scrape down the sides of the jar, and
blend again for 40 seconds. To make the batter by hand, beat the eggs and
salt with a whisk or a rotary or electric beater until frothy. Slowly add
the flour, beating constantly. Then pour in the milk in a thin stream and
beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Refrigerate the batter for at
least 1 hour. Place the sausages side by side in a heavy 10 to 12 inch (25
to 30 cm) skillet, and prick them once or twice with the tines of a fork.
Sprinkle them with 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of water, cover the pan tightly,
and cook over low heat for 3 minutes. Then remove the cover, increase the
heat to moderate, and continue to cook, turning the sausages frequently
with tongs or a spatula, until the water has completely evaporated and the
sausages have begun to brown in their own fat. Arrange the sausages in a
single layer in a baking tin or dish about 6 by 10 inches (15x25 cm) and 2
inches (5 cm) deep, and moisten them with 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of their
drippings. Keep them at least an inch (2.5 cm) apart. Then pour the batter
over them and bake in the middle of a preheated 400F (200C) oven for 30
minutes, or until the pudding has risen over the top of the pan and is
crisp and brown. Serve at once.
