It's winter and we've been craving the taste, aroma's and comfort of a sticky date pudding. So we made some tweaks to our original recipe to create little sticky date loaves using the Spiced Cinnamon Scroll Better Being Base.
And instead of a sauce, we created a caramel icing.
They are perfect on their own, slightly warmed in the microwave or served with your favourite vanilla ice-cream.
1 1/2 cups Spiced Cinnamon Scroll Better Being Base
2 tbsp SR Flour
1 cup Dates, seeded
1 cup Boiling Water
1/3 cup Coconut / Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Butter, softened
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 cup Coconut / Brown Sugar
1 1/2 tbsp Milk of choice
2/3 cup Icing sugar
Preheat oven to 180°C and grease 6 mini loaves muffin tray
In a bowl place the dates and boiling water. Leave these to soak until the dates become soft. Drain reserving 1/2 cup of date water.
In a processor or cake mixer, cream the sugar and butter together until it becomes light and creamy.
Add in vanilla and eggs, one at a time mix until combined.
Add in dates, reserved water, baking powder, Base mix and flour and pulse (if using a processor) or mix until batter is formed.
Spoon batter into the loaves muffin tray and place in to the oven for 25 -35 minutes until lightly golden.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes before turning out on to a wire rack to cool completely.
In a medium heat sauce pan melt the butter and sugar together, until sugar slightly dissolves. Stir continuously to prevent burning.
Add in milk and continue to stir until combined.
Gradually stir in 1/3 of a cup of icing sugar at a time until icing forms a semi set paste
Spoon icing mix over chilled loaves and top as desired.
