Sticky Toffee Pudding

As you probably know by now, our latest book is called BOSH! HEALTHY VEGAN. In that book, we talk about the 80/20 principle, which basically means, eat healthy 80% of the time and feel free to eat naughty food 20% of the time.

This recipe, definitely falls into naughty category... It might be naughty, but you better believe, it’s nice. Super, super nice. It’s the perfect dessert to eat after a hearty winter meal, like a pie. Wash it down with a cup of tea and you’ll be winning.


If you make this, which we hope you do, we’re almost positive you’ll love it!

Method

  1. 1.

    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, 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
