Mini Jan El­lis pud­dings with pino­tage sauce and crème anglaise

YOU Winning Recipes - - CONTENTS -

Jan El­lis pud­ding is sim­i­lar to a malva pud­ding with its rich cream sauce. It’s de­li­cious but not for any­one watch­ing their weight! I’ve adapted it to make the sauce less rich and sweet and served with a home-made crème anglaise (a light, pour­ing cus­tard).


Maryna gave this old fam­ily recipe a bit of a kick with Amarula, a South African liqueur. I liked the lo­cal twist so opted for pino­tage wine in my ver­sion.
