Orange Malva Pudding, South Africa. This is the best Malva Pudding EVER! I have tasted many and this one beats them all hands down. I made it again last night and just couldn't help having some for breakfast. Fireside food at its best and proudly South African.
Soetkoekies (Spicy biscuits with almonds and Port) are of Dutch origin and have been a favorite South African treat for many years, together with other traditional cookies such as crunchies and rusks. The Dutch colonised Cape Town in 1652 and rapidly established their cooking traditions at the Cape, so this is probably one of the older recipes still in use in South Africa.
