Elena Duggan

Ingredients:

  • 250g Pitted Dates
  • 250g Boiling Water
  • 100g Buckwheat Flour
  • 200g Almond Meal
  • 25g Raw Cacao Powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla/ vanilla bean, seeds scraped
  • 1 tsp BiCarb Soda
  • 150g Coconut Oil
  • 100g Sugar free dark chocolate, stevia sweetened, roughly chopped
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 200g Buttermilk

Sauce

  • 400ml (1 can) coconut Milk
  • 100g Pitted Dates
  • 1 tsp Vanilla / whole vanilla bean, seeds scraped

Method:

  1. Preheat to 180°Celsius, fan forced.
  2. Grease round ceramic baking dish.
  3. Pour boiling water over dates in a bowl, allow time to soften, then drain and finely dice.
  4. Put all pudding ingredients into a bowl and stir until thoroughly combined.
  5. Pour batter into baking dish and bake at 180°Celsius for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
  6. While baking, prepare the sauce by heating all ingredients in a small pot on the stovetop. Once just simmering remove from heat and blitz with a stick blender until thick and caramel in colour.
  7. Pass through a sieve if you want an extra smooth sauce.
  8. Remove pudding from oven and poke holes using a skewer all over the top down to the bottom.
  9. While still warm pour about half of the sauce mixture over the top gently so as to fill all the holes created.
  10. Serve with extra sauce.
