Hausa Sweet Pudding Recipe


  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder (optional)

1 liter of whole milk

The first thing you need to do is to boil the milk. You can use any kind of milk, but whole is best. If you want a richer taste and texture, try using skimmed or semi-skimmed instead of low fat.

If you’re using full-fat cow’s milk, heat it gently in a saucepan over a medium heat until it comes just below boiling point – don’t let it boil! Then turn off the heat and leave it until cool enough to handle with your fingers without burning yourself (about 20 minutes).

If using soy or almond varieties instead of dairy products then follow their specific instructions on how long they need cooking in order to make sure that they reach the right consistency before being added into other ingredients later on within this recipe

2 cups of sugar

Measure 2 cups of sugar into a bowl and set aside. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, then add flour and baking powder, stirring to combine. Add milk slowly while stirring until mixture becomes smooth and thickens slightly (it should be able to coat the back of a spoon). Remove from heat and let cool slightly before adding vanilla extract or other flavoring agents if desired.

Pour this mixture into an oven-safe dish with high sides (such as a pie plate), then sprinkle on top with 1 cup sugar evenly spaced around its surface. Next add half of your fruit slices evenly spaced around its surface as well; repeat with another layer of 1 cup sugar then remaining fruit slices. Pour remaining batter over top until it covers all ingredients completely but does not overflow from edges; use your fingers if needed! Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes until golden browned on top – if you find yourself needing more time than this then either lower temperature down 25 degrees Fahrenheit every 15 minutes until done or check every 10 minutes after 30 minutes have passed since starting timer!

6 tablespoons of butter (melted)

  • Melt the butter in a small pan over low heat.
  • Make sure it’s not too hot, because then it will burn the mixture and make it taste bad.
  • Add the melted butter to your mix of water, sugar and cornflour until they’re well combined.

3 cups of plain flour (self-raising)

  • For the pudding, heat the milk and sugar in a saucepan over medium-low heat until just below boiling point. Add flour to make a smooth mixture and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon or spatula to prevent lumps from forming. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly before adding vanilla essence and butter cubes (or margarine). Stir until well combined then pour into individual serving bowls or cups.*
  • To serve: Serve warm with fresh fruit salad on the side. You can also drizzle some honey over the top if you like sweet desserts! It’s delicious either way!*
  • Store any leftover puddings in an airtight container in the fridge so they don’t go bad too quickly.*

1 teaspoon salt

Salt is a preservative, and it’s used to enhance the flavor of food. It can also be used to balance the sweetness of a pudding, or enhance it if you want more saltiness. Salt balances out acidity in a recipe as well, so if your pudding is too sour or tart-tasting, adding some salt will fix that problem right up! Finally, if you find that your pudding has an unpleasant bitterness to it (perhaps because of over-steeping), adding just a touch of salt will help take away some of those bad vibes

4 teaspoons baking powder (self-rising)

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder (self-rising)

Baking powder is a leavening agent, which means it helps the pudding rise. It’s mixed with the flour before adding to the milk, so that it can work its magic!
