Spiced Date & Apple Pudding with Caramel Sauce


  • 150g cooked apples
  • 100g dates, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons honey/maple syrup
  • 100ml almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 100g oat flour
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 2 tablespoons Linwoods Flax, Chia, Apple & Cinnamon
  • 50g coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons mixed spice
    For the caramel sauce -
  • 2 tablespoons smooth almond or cashew butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 3-4 tablespoons almond milk
  • Pinch of mixed spice
    To decorate -
  • Dried apple crisps
  • Chopped dates
  • Flaked almonds


  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C and lightly grease 4 x 150ml pudding tins and place on a baking tray.
  2. Place the cooked apples, drained dates, bicarb of soda, egg, maple syrup/honey, almond milk and vanilla in a blender and whizz up until smooth. The mixture will expand thanks to the bicarb!
  3. Now fold in the oat flour, ground almonds, flaxseeds, coconut sugar and mixed spice to form a batter.
  4. Divide between the pudding tins to reach the top then bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and risen. Leave to cool slightly.
  5. Meanwhile gently heat the caramel sauce ingredients in a small pan and whisk to form a smooth sauce.
  6. Run a knife around the pudding tins and turn out. Serve some sauce over the top and decorate. Enjoy while still warm!
