What makes dessert after a big and tasty meal even better is that it’s almost always a treat after a long time of not having something sweet. So, you want something that not only satiates the sweet craving but fills that last gap in your tummy with goodness after having flavours dance on your tongue. This warm winter pudding is based on classic South African malva pudding with a brandy and citrus twist that everybody at the lunch table can enjoy with every bite.

This dessert is also made with mincemeat is a mixture of chopped dried fruit, distilled spirits and spices, and often beef suet, usually used as a pie or pastry filling. It’s sweetened with treacle and flavoured with lots of butter before being drenched with a citrus and brandy sauce that turns up the richness. Even though it has this rich sauce, you can still add custard and if you’re feeling more decadent, some ice cream to the mix for that hot/cold contrast.
Surprise your friends and family with a rich and decadent warm winter pudding that will turn any meal into a full-on feast.
