Malva Pudding

Recipe by Norahs Girl

This is a very popular pudding here in South Africa, very gooey and not for the calorie concious! My youngest son adores it so I make it at least once a week!

I used to use this recipe all the time, it is amazing! But i think something has changed as it is a bit misleading around adding the milk to the butter mixture ( like it used to say) that is now missing and refers to 'wet mixture' which i thought was the eggs. it would be good to change that back to how it was. Otherwise this is the best pudding anyone can have!
