Sultan's Delight

When we were on our week's vacation in the UK, we experimented with South African recipes from a magazine Lord S had bought on his travels. I promised to post the recipes, and here's the first one. It literally takes just seconds to make - a few minutes if you count the time for measuring.

Sultan's Delight, a warm pudding (serves 4 to 6)
500 ml (2 cups) milk
250 g (1 cup) suigar
250 ml (1 cup) coconut milk
250 g (1 cup) flour
60 g butter
4 eggs
5 ml (1 teaspoon) vanilla essence
2 ml (1/2 teaspoon) baking powder
pinch of salt

To go with it: fruit of your choice (we had pineapple; very good combination)

Preheat the oven to 180C (360F). Butter an ovendish.

Beat all the ingredients together until well mixed.

Pour in oven dish and bake for 30-60 minutes, until it's brown and risen, and a knife dipped in the center comes out clean.

Serve warm rather than piping hot.

The baking time may vary according to ovens and dish used. The cottage oven took more like 1,5 hrs, and for the last 45 minutes I covered to top with tinfoil to stop it from getting too dark. You can bake it in advance, and reheat it in the microwave.

It really tastes great. And just so wonderfully easy.

This sounds delicious! And easy (always a plus for us non-cooks). Thanks for posting.

It's really great, and it truly takes less than 5 minutes.

That sounds absolutely delicious!
Glad to hear the pineapple (one of my favourite fruits) worked with it.
