Signature Dish: Pantry Pudding
[box]This is a Signature Dish competition entry by Chantalellis. Creating delicious puddings from items in the cupboard is one of my favourite things to do. Thanks for sharing this recipe! – Matt[/box]
This recipe, handed down from my Ouma (Grandmother), is always quick and easy to make because the ingredients are things everyone has in their pantry or food cupboard! It has a cake like texture, surrounded by oozing thick syrupy goodness. Particularly handy for impromptu dinners or family gatherings!
