Recipe: Guilt free Sticky Date Pud

After a few people spied the picture of our guilt-free Sticky Date Pudding recipe on my last post, I've had a couple of requests for the recipe, so without further ado:

Ingredients:

The Pud
Olive oil spray
180g pitted dates roughly chopped
1 tsp baking soda
50g of Olivio Lite or low-fat Canola spread
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour

The Sauce:
185ml can low-fat evaporated milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup low-fat vanilla custard (optional)

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and spray a 20 x 30 cm slice tin lightly with olive oil spray or rub a small amount of oil.
  2. Place the dates and baking soda in a heat proof bowl and pour over 1 cup (250ml) of boiling water. Leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Using electric beaters, beat the olivio/canola spread, brown sugar and eggs until smooth.
  4. Stir in the flur and date mixture
  5. Pour into the prepared tin.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  7. Combine evaporated milk and extra brown sugar in a small saucepan. Stir over low heat to dissolve sugar, then bring to the boil. Simmer for 3 minutes.
  8. Cut pudding into sixteen portions otherwise it won't be quite so guilt-free ;-)
  9. Serve warm, drizzled with a little sauce (oh and custard and hundreds and thousands if you wish ;-)
This pudding is just as tasty reheated from frozen, so freeze as many portions as you want to make the guilt-free goodness last and last!


Enjoy!
