1 egg
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tablespoon of apricot jam
1 tablespoon of Vinegar
1 cup of milk
2 tablespoons of butter

For sauce –

1 cup of milk
3 tablespoons of sugar
2- 3 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon of vanilla essence


In a bowl whisk your egg , sugar, butter and jam for about 2 minutes , now add the vinegar , milk and whisk for a minute till well combined .

Sift the dry ingredients into bowl and mix till all ingredients are combined .

Pour in a square greased tin ( not big pan ) or glassproof baking dish , bake for half an hour at 180°C or when inserting skewer it comes out clean , also the cake will be a brown colour .

While the cake is baking put all your sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to the simmer and stir till hot – keep warm one side .

When your cake is done take out of oven and immediately pour over all the sauce.

For a bigger pudding simply double all ingredients .
