I wanted to bake a sticky date pudding for a long time. Today i found a pack of dates in the back of the fridge which was nearing its expiry date. So i decided to use that in baking. I made a dates coconut energy bites and this delicious sticky date pudding. This is the first time i am trying it and it is a total winner..I am not a cake opr pudding person, but when i tasted this i am totally changed. If anyone asked me what is your favourite desert in this whole world, i would say it is sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce.
I made this eggless, since i didn't have eggs on hand. I created this recipe based on the ingredients i had on hand and when i took the first bite, i am completely lost. Specially the warm butterscotch sauce makes this pudding, it takes it to a whole new level. I strongly suggest you to make this pudding and serve it with butterscotch sauce. It is like a marriage made in heaven, cannot be separated at all..
Hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..
