With winter coming, our family loves having warm puddings on a Sunday afternoon. I thought I’d share my ultimate favorite recipe with you and hope you will enjoy it too.

Sago Pudding

  • 250 ml sago
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 liter milk
  • 125 ml sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 25 ml butter
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 5 ml vanilla essence 
  • 50 ml apricot jam


  • Rinse the sago off.
  • Add the cinnamon stick and sago to the milk and heat slowly.
  • Cook on low heat until the sago is translucent, +- 15 min
  • Add the sugar, salt, and butter, mix well.
  • Remove the cinnamon stick, add the beaten egg and vanilla essence.
  • Spoon the mixture into a casserole dish and make little holes in mixture to add the apricot jam 
  • Bake at 180ºC (350ºF) for 25 minutes, serve hot or cold with custard or evaporated milk.
