Heerlike Poeding


This is a recipe from South Africa. "Heerlike Poeding" (pronounced "here-lick-a pudding") literally means "Delicious Pudding" in Afrikaans. This is not a dessert to be served at refined dinner parties. However, it is a truly delicious baked pudding in the blue collar tradition that is perfect for hearty appetites on cold, wintry days. It's easy to make, too.





  1. Beat egg and sugar. Add remaining ingredients except milk. Mix well, then add milk and mix well again. (The mixture will be very liquid, but that's okay.)
  2. Bake for one hour at 350 degrees F in a deep uncovered casserole dish - say about 7 to 8 inches square or round and 3 or 4 inches deep.
  3. Just before the hour is up, prepare the Syrup. Bring the syrup to the boil, then pour it into the dish, while the pudding is still hot from the oven.
  4. Let stand for a few minutes before serving.

Can be served with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Leftovers may be reheated either in the oven or microwave. It seems to taste even better the second time around!
