A Fabulous Vinegar Pudding

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Flamink

This is a very old traditional recipe. It has a sweet and sour taste and is still enjoyed by many South Africans. It was usually served after a Sunday Lunch. It can be served with custard or without as it is quite a moist pudding. Serve hot.

Reminds me of my childhood. My mother made it every Sunday for our family of seven. Perfect pudding.
