{Gluten and Dairy Free} Malva Pudding

On the 11th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, a Dairy free, Gluten Free Malva Pudding with cup of tea. Ok, let me stick to coming up with recipes for y’all. 🙄

People, this is one kitchen experiment I am super proud of – and I dare you to prove me wrong – tell me this Dairy and Gluten-free Malva does not taste like the real pudding!

I made it for my family get together and nobody believed it was free from traditional flour, butter and cream. It really does taste that good and I plan to make it on Christmas Day too!

Recipe notes for this Gluten and Dairy Free Malva Pudding:

  • Please don’t make this recipe with anything other than Woolworth’s Gluten-Free flour – I can’t guarantee that the results will be the same
  • You can swop the coconut oil for butter if you prefer for the sauce
  • You can also use almond milk or cow’s milk for the pudding if you don’t have rice milk
  • Make sure to use baking soda – not baking powder
  • You can make this pudding the day before and just warm up in the oven before serving
  • I am not sure if this Malva Pudding freezes well – so I wouldn’t advise freezing it ahead of time
  • Serve with custard if you like – but it really doesn’t need anything else!

Happy Baking and PLEASE tag me in your pictures!
