Vegan Sticky Date Pudding With Rich Caramel Sauce

In Australia, the Sticky Date Pudding is a tradition that spans back to its origins in England in the 1960s. I grew up eating this for dessert on many occasions, and each time it was the best part of the week. Having gone plant-based we have swapped out the animal products to make this vegan sticky date pudding, but its just as decadent and sticky as the original version.


We have replaced the eggs with the Organs Egg Replacer, the butter with Nuttlex and the cream in the sauce with coconut cream. Do not worry though, you won’t taste a hint of coconut after this is reduced down in the sauce.


HINT: Make sure to leave some sauce aside for your guests to add or dip their pudding in as they devore this.

Author Simon Hall


  • 250 grams Pitted Dates
  • 1 tsp Bi-Carb Soda
  • 1 cup Boiling Water
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 60 grams Nuttlex
  • 2 Egg Replacer
  • 1 & 1/2 cups Gluten-Free Self Raising Flour


  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 200 ml Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 60 grams Nuttlex


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  2. Cut up the dates into small pieces. These can be whatever size you want them to be.

  3. In a large bowl combine all of the pudding ingredients with the dates and mix until combined.

  4. Pour into a oven safe dish, whatever size you would like your pudding to be.

  5. Place in the oven for 15-20 mins

  6. For the sticky sauce, place all the ingredients into a small saucepan and turn the heat to medium-high.

  7. Continue to stir until the sauce starts to thicken. It will bubble & change colour, but keep stiring. It will eventually change to a thicker syrup then remove it from the heat.

  8. Poke a few holes in the top of the pudding with a toothpick and pour the sauce over the top. Leave a little aside for extra dipping.

  9. SERVE
