About this recipe: This is my favourite baked dessert. My mother makes it and serves it with ice cream and custard. It's simple and quick.

  • For the batter
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup (125ml) milk
  • 1½ cups self-raising flour
  • 125g white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 30ml apricot jam
  • 1 tablespoon very soft margarine or butter
  • pinch salt
  • For the sauce
  • 1 cup (250ml) water
  • 1 cup (250ml) cream
  • 250g margarine or butter

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 2 litre oven-proof dish.
  2. Dissolve the baking powder in the milk. Add to the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Pour the mixture into the baking dish and bake for 25 – 30 minutes (don’t use a smaller dish, even though it might look a little empty)
  4. Heat all the ingredients for the sauce till boiling point. Pour the hot sauce over the hot dessert when it comes out of the oven. Let the dessert rest for the sauce to be absorbed.
  5. Serve warm with custard, cream or ice cream.
