Hotel Pudding

Hotel Pudding ~

This is a recipe which I found in a magazine. These are normally compiled using readers' recipes which had been received over the years.

The name immediately grabbed my attention "Hotel Pudding"  .. well, the full name is "Ouma Estelle's Hotel Pudding", but I shortened it a bit.

I would have loved to see the original recipe in the magazine it was first featured in, as readers tend to attach a small story to the recipes and I would have loved to know how, why and where this name had come from. I find small things like that quite interesting.

It is a gooey, sweet and moist pudding.  This can be served with ice-cream, whipped cream, custard or on it's own - we had it with ice-cream {Nothing better than a warm pudding with ice-cream melting all over it!}

You can bake these in enamel mugs as I did, ramekins or in a large pudding dish.


  • 1 cup Flour
  • 2 TB Butter
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1/2 TB Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup Smooth Apricot Jam
  • 1 TB Lemon Juice
  • SAUCE:
  • 1 cup Fresh Cream {whipping cream/double cream}
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray 4 mugs/ramekins or a large dish with cooking oil.
  2. Place the Flour and Butter in a mixing bowl - mix until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Mix the Milk and Bicarbonate of Soda - add to the Flour together with the 2 beaten Eggs, Apricot Jam and Lemon Juice - mix well until a smooth batter forms.
  4. Spoon into the prepared baking dish/es - it shouldn't be more than half full.
  5. Place on a lined baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
  6. Mix together the Cream, Sugar and 1 beaten Egg - remove the baked pudding from the oven and pour the Cream mixture over the warm pudding - return to the oven and bake another 15 - 20 minutes until the sauce starts to thicken.

Serve warm and enjoy !

  1. Ooh my nana made something like this it's really good!

  2. That looks very similar to our bread pudding here. Which is delicious. The apricot jam in it is intriguing to say the least!! Yumm!
