Step-by-Step Perfection: From Date Jug to Dessert Plate
Step 1: Prep the Dates
Start by creating a luscious date mixture. In a jug, combine 200g of chopped Majoule dates with 1 tsp of bicarbonate of soda, and pour 200ml of hot water over them. Set aside for 10 minutes to let the dates soak up the flavours.
Step 2: Preheat and Prepare
While the dates are soaking, preheat your oven to 170°C and prepare an 8” square tin by greasing and lining it. This ensures your pudding comes out perfectly without sticking.
Step 3: Sift the Dry Ingredients
In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients:
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 2 tsp baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- 250g plain flour
Step 4: Blend the Wet Ingredients
Add the following to the date and water mixture:
- 60ml sunflower oil
- 80ml soy milk
- 60g dark brown sugar
- 30g (2 tbsp) treacle
Blend the mixture until smooth, creating a rich and flavorful base for your pudding.
Step 5: Combine and Bake
Pour the blended mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and fold until all the components are well incorporated. Transfer the batter into the prepared baking tin and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
The Toffee Sauce Magic
While your pudding is baking, let's whip up the irresistible toffee sauce:
Step 6: Melt and Stir
In a saucepan, melt the following ingredients over low heat:
- 120g vegan butter
- 120g light brown sugar
- 1 tbsp (25g) treacle
Step 7: Creamy Goodness
Stir in 150ml of plant-based cream or coconut cream and add 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Let the mixture simmer for a few minutes, allowing the flavours to meld and intensify.
Step 8: Pour and Serve
Once your pudding is out of the oven, pour the warm toffee sauce generously over the top. Watch it cascade down the sides, creating a heavenly glaze. Slice, serve, and revel in the joy of indulging in this decadent vegan treat.
