I posted this saucy date pudding on my Instagram?recently and said I would put up the recipe. So here it is! I find that people love sweet things just as much as I do so I really want to expand the dessert part of my recipe index. This recipe was inspired by the coop foods sticky toffee pudding which I loved for years before becoming vegan. it’s crammed full of dates and has a gorgeous buttery sauce – but alas, it’s not vegan. So I’m here to help you still enjoy a pud like this as a vegan.
I didn’t have much in the way of food one evening and really fancied something sweet. I’ve found myself whipping all kinds of sweet treats lately with the dregs of my pantry. I always have flour and baking things even if my fridge is empty. And I just so happened to have some of these fantastic local dates I bought over Christmas and thought they would be good in a cake. After some thought and checking what other ingredients I had I decided to make this pudding. I was very happy with the end result and ate the whole thing to myself in 2 days. (Don’t judge me, ha)
It’s super easy and the bicarb and dates act in place of the egg. It all comes together in a fantastic cake batter consistency, you’d never know that there’s no eggs or milk in it. Also, the ginger is totally optional, it can just be with dates like a sticky toffee if you wish.
