Anele Mdoda, the beloved media personality, recently had South Africans in stitches when she shared a cooking mishap on her social media.
Known for her candidness and willingness to share both the highs and lows of her life, Anele didn’t hold back when it came to this culinary disaster.
In a video posted on her timeline, Anele attempted to elevate her malva pudding by pouring Amarula over it instead of the traditional custard.
However, the result was far from what she had hoped for. With a touch of self-deprecating humour, she admitted that the experiment was a complete disaster and had to resort back to custard.
Of course, her fans couldn’t resist chiming in with their opinions and suggestions. Many advised her to add the Amarula to the custard first, while others shared their own recipes for her to try. It seems everyone had an opinion on how to salvage the malva pudding mishap.
The way I thought this would be a fire idea. Terrible. I drained the Amarula and went back to custard 😔 pic.twitter.com/BPuFx6CRdf

One user, @i_am_bbf, even expressed their longing for South African delicacies, saying, “Anele, making me miss SA even more! Nothing in North America beats @WOOLWORTHS_SA, and I wish I could fill a trolley and ship it here to Canada.”
While Anele’s cooking adventure didn’t go as planned, it’s clear that her ability to laugh at herself and share the experience with her fans is what makes her so endearing. After all, we all have our kitchen mishaps, and sometimes the best way to handle them is with a dose of humour.
So, next time you’re in the mood for a little culinary experimentation, remember Anele’s malva pudding mishap and maybe stick to the tried-and-true custard. And if you do decide to get creative, just remember to add the Amarula to the custard first, or you might end up with a dessert disaster of your own.
