Don’t even get us started on that caramel sauce. Words can not describe how good it is. We know you’re going to L-O-V-E it!

Although we loved this cake… we had to send it home with Mum and Dad right away. Otherwise we would have eaten the whole darn thing in 2 days. Yep… it’s that good!

So please when you make it… ensure to invite friends and family over or freeze some right away! You could even make mini versions… great for portion control and easy to freeze.

  9. I wonder if I could sub some of the almond meal with arrowroot/tapioca? I don’t like using heaps of almond meal. A) because I cant source raw almonds to activate them and B) cos its expensive
    Any ideas?

  11. Do i have to let the sugar and butter brown before i put the coconut cream in? (for the caramel sauce) or will it brown all together?

  12. Post

    Hi Denise! It’s best to try and make the butter come in to a thick caramel… but if this doesn’t happen… it will still work! 🙂

  14. Thank you! Just had a piece with my boyfriend (whose fav dessert is sticky date pudding) and it was soooo good, and the sauce wow ???? thanks a bunch

  16. Cooked this last night. I found that 45 mins is too long to cook the pudding. Suggest 30 mins for fan forced and 35-40 mins without. Also, there is no benefit to cooking the syrup for 5 mins once the coconut cream is added. Suggest cooking the sugar/butter for 4 mins which will give a stronger caramel flavour and omit the vanilla. Add the coconut cream at the end and stir through, no need to ‘cook’.

  18. Can you recommend a substitute for coconut sugar which isn’t very healthy, fructose wise.?

  19. Post

    Hey Carolyn! You probably don’t wanna make this if you’re concerned about fructose… dates are super high in this! But you could swap for rice malt syrup 🙂

  21. Absolutely loved this. I substituted the coconut sugar for rice malt syrup, and made mini puddings using a muffin tin, cooking for 30mins…they were so delicious! Thanks for this recipe it’s going to be a regular for sure.

  23. Was good. Caramel is even better the next day when it cools and thicken more. For those preparing ahead for a group, you can make the caramel ahead of time and apply over dish prior to serving.

  26. Hi there, I’m not a fan of coconut milk or coconut cream, is there dairy free options you can substitute for the caramel?

  28. Can this be made with Hazel nut meal & what could I use instead of eggs?

  29. Post

    Yes, you can use hazelnut meal. You could try chia eggs where 1 egg = 1 tbs. chia seeds and 3 tbs. water. Stir and let it gel. But we have never tried so we are not 100% sure how it will turn out 🙂

  30. Made this last night for my son’s 10th birthday. It was a hit! Everyone enjoyed it. So delicious and such a treat. Will definitely make it again.
