Malva Pudding

Serves: 6-8

Cooking time: 45 Minutes

Hint: Chopped left over meat such as chicken or beef can be used to replace the bacon and viennas.


  • 3 slices white bread, roughly crumbled
  • 30 g (2 T) butter or margarine
  • 500 ml (2 cups) milk
  • 125 g bacon, chopped
  • 200 g (2 cups) cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 6 vienna sausages, drained and chopped, or a mixture of salami and sausages of your choice
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 5 ml (1 t) mustard powder
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 30 ml (2 T) parsley, chopped
  • 10 baby tomatoes (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
  • Heat the bread, butter or margarine and the milk together over medium heat until just boiling. Remove from heat and leave to cool slightly.
  • Add all the other ingredients and mix lightly.
  • Spoon the mixture into a pie dish and dot with the baby tomatoes.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until the pie is golden brown and set.
  • Serve hot or cold as a complete meal. Cold left over slices are delicious for lunch box treats.
