Before you start

Preheat oven to 160°C | Small saucepan | 25 x 15 x 5cm ovenproof dish greased with dairy-free butter 

First, make the Pudding

  • Finely slice the dates
  • Put them in the saucepan with the oat milk, vanilla extract and stir until the dates are soft, approx 10-12 minutes
  • Take the pan off the heat and stir in the bicarbonate of soda
  • Let the contents of the pan cool to room temperature
  • Add 115g of the dairy-free butter and 100g light brown sugar to the pan and fold to combine
  • Add the flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and stir them through a few times with a spoon until combined, but not overmixed
  • Pour the mixture into the baking dish and smooth out the top with a spatula
  • Put the dish in the oven and bake the pudding for 35–40 minutes, until risen and a skewer inserted into the centre of the sponge comes out clean

Now, make the Sticky Toffee Sauce

  • Clean the saucepan and put it back on a medium heat
  • Add the maple syrup, dark brown sugar and the remaining 100g dairy-free butter into the pan, stir and reduce the heat to low
  • Cook for 5 minutes until you have a syrup
  • Remove the pan from the hob, allow it to cool slightly and then stir in the oat cream
  • Pour into a small jug

Time to serve!

  • Cut the sticky toffee pudding into slices
  • Plate up a slice, pour over a little sticky toffee sauce, a scoop of ice cream and serve immediately
