Although the sound of vinegar in a pudding is odd, this tastes great! It has a subtle sweet and sour taste to it and is very delicious served with custard. Good for those cold winter nights!

  7. Bake at 180C degrees for 45 minutes. Add the rest of the sauce 20 minutes times into the baking process. There is a lot of sauce and the cake will absorb it. Test with a skewer if it is baked through. Serve with custard.
