Malva Pudding is a famous South African dessert and I can't wait to share this vegan version with you. You really won't be able to guess that this is a vegan version!


  • 1 1/4 Cup Sugar

  • 1/2 cup of applesauce or apple purity

  • 3 Tablespoons of apricot jam

  • 3 Tablespoons melted coconut oil

  • 2 cups of all purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

  • pinch of salt

For the sauce:

  • 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons of sugar of your choice

  • 1 tablespoon of apricot jam

  • 1/4 tin of coconut cream

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence


  1. Preheat your oven top 180 °C and start with the malva.

  2. Mix together all of your wet ingredients. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until smooth.

  3. Pour into your oiled baking dish and place in the oven to bake for about 35-40 minutes or test if the pudding is ready by inserting a thin knife into the centre and if it comes out clean your pudding is ready.

  4. Once your malva is ready, start with the sauce.

  5. Melt the coconut oil in a pot mixing in the sugar and jam. Add the coconut cream and bring to boil.

  6. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla essence.
