What you'll do

You will be welcomed with Koeksisters—a traditional Afrikaner confectionery—and we will also have tea, as it's a tradition with this dessert. Then we will talk about what we will be making, Malva Pudding, and I will give you a bit of history about this dessert. Malva Pudding is a sweet pudding of South African origin that is famous because it was adored by Nelson Mandela. It was also prepared for Oprah Winfrey at the Christmas dinner in 2006 and to the pupils of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy. While it's baking, we will have Melktert. Melktert, also called milk tart, is an Afrikaans dessert that has a sweet pastry crust and a creamy custard. It's a South African favorite for tea, birthday parties, or just as a sweet after dinner. We will then sit down and have our baked pudding with different South African teas. You will be able to take home all the desserts and buy any others that are available during the experience.

I love baking. I grew up in Parys in the Free State province and my mum worked in a bakery. I've been baking since I was 14 and I thoroughly enjoy it. I love trying new recipes and I hope to open a bakery one day.

Mapaseka was very patient,polite and did not hesitate to repeat until I got the instructions. She is very passionate about baking and her enthusiasm is contagious. I fell in love with my malva pudding and definitely going back again. I would recommend her for any one especially children because of her fun energy. Thanks Mapaseka
