Sticky Tofffee Pudding



Oven Temperature: 180C/350F/Gas 4
Cooking Time: about 30 minutes
Quantity: 8 servings

Who needs eggs and dairy!? No one would guess this was vegan - even my Dad was impressed.


Ingredients

175g (7 oz) soft brown sugar
50g (2 oz) margarine
175g (7 oz) finely chopped dates
225g (9 oz) self-raising flour
1/2 - 1 tsp baking powder
275ml (1/2 pint) boiling water
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking powder is fine if you don't have any)
1tsp vanilla essence
For the sauce
50g (2 oz) margarine
75g (3 oz) soft brown sugar
3 tbsp soya cream (you can use soya milk in an emergency!)

Instructions

1. Cream together margarine and sugar. (This is a fairly low fat recipe so the mixture will be crumbly at first rather than creamy!)
2. Put the chopped dates in a medium sized bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon of the self raising flour, the bicarbonate of soda and the vanilla essence. Pour on the boiling water - it will fizz up!
3. Fold the flour and baking powder into the margarine mixture. If the mixture becomes too dry, add some of the liquid from the dates.
4. Finally add the dates and all of the liquid. Blend it together and pour into a greased/lined 7"x11" baking tray.
5. Cook for about 30 - 35 minutes at 180C/350F until cooked.
6. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Melt the margarine over a low heat and then add the sugar. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat. Stir in the vegan cream and pour the toffee sauce over the cake when it comes out of the oven. Put the cake under the grill for a couple of minutes until the sauce bubbles.
7. Serve with vegan cream or ice cream.
