Sticky Date Pudding

Postby Ally » Mon Aug 28, 2006 10:23 am


1/2 cup chopped seeded dates
1 1/2 cups SR flour
1/4 cup warmed golden syrup
2 egg whites
1/4 cup loosely packed brown sugar (do not push it in)
1/2 cup apple sauce (in jar)
3/4 level teaspoon bi-carb soda

3 teaspoons low fat margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar (loosely packed)
1/3 cup light evap milk

Preheat oven to 200*C. Coat a 6 cup muffin pan with cooking spray. Using an electric beater, beat egg whites and brown sugar for 1 minute in a medium size mixing bowl. Stir bicarb soda into apple sauce (it will froth) then add to bowl with chopped dates and warmed golden syrup, combine ingredients. GEntly fold flour into mixture in one go. DO NOT BEAT as this will make the puddings tough. (mixture can look a little lumpy). Spoon mixture into prepared muffin pan, dividing equally into 6 cups. Bake 20 minutes or until cooked.

To make sauce use a small non-stick saucepan, melt margarine, add sugar to pan and stir until sugar has dissolved. Slowly add in milk. Pour sauce over top of each pudding. Serve with low fat custard or low fat ice cream.

That is a good recipe Ally, especially the fat content.

To give everyone an idea. A slice of sarah lee's sticky date it is 266 cals but 10g of fat and that is one of the lower end calorie sticky dates as others were over 300 cals with even higher fat content. Besides there's just something about a home cooked cake. Will try that at the weekend.

Hey Kim, you can cut the sugar content down by 1/2 of what it says as well, I just put what the recipe said as it came from a recipe book. I made them with 1/2 the brown sugar (in the pudding) and they still tasted great as you had the sweetness from the sauce!! Happy baking!

Ally your a legend - I will give this one a try on the weekend, and add up all the ingredients using only half the sugar and see what the calorie count comes out like!
