The best vegan sticky toffee pudding recipe

Vegan, quick & easy.

Ever wondered how to make a moist, sweet and extremely luxurious sticky toffee pudding...well now you can!

Sticky toffee pudding has been one of my favourite desserts since I was young and still is to this day.
The light and chewy sponge cake, topped off with a toffee glaze and drizzle, served with creamy ice-cream....just divine!! 

This pudding is absolutely scrumptious.
Tuck into a classic British dessert..the vegan way!
The sponge is rich, moist and chewy, with the toffee sauce drizzle which soaks into the sponge creating a super sticky, gooey, irresistible and comforting treat.
I am over the moon to show you my brand new and extremely beautiful oven.
It's from DeDietrich, and is basically the Tesla of oven's- it's insane!

I got the rose gold & black, which is fitted into my kitchen unit.
It has a large touch screen, which is clear to read with loads of options- including:
-Defrost function
-Drying function
-12 cooking functions
-Soft close door
-DX1 display
-Rose gold turner
-6 shelf levels
-35 auto recipes
+ loads more!

Check out their range of ovens here, perfect for any baker- I personally highly recommend it!
I used the sponge setting to help me make this scrumptious sponge cake! It cooked the sponge beautifully, giving it a gorgeous golden colour! 
This cake looks absolutely stunning, tastes exquisite and is perfect for sharing, especially during the holidays/Christmas. Enjoy it warm or cold, with custard, dairy-free cream or ice-cream!

As it's jam-packed full of moorish, sticky toffee, you'll want another slice...I'm sure! 

Preparation- 25 minutes
Baking time- 28-30 minutes 
Serves- 12 
Level- Easy

Ingredients for the sponge 
-480ml of almond milk (I use unsweetened)
-2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
-425g of self-raising flour
-440g of golden caster sugar
-1 teaspoon of baking powder
-1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
-2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
-1 teaspoon of ground ginger
-150g of pitted dates (soaked and drained)
-40g of black treacle
-120g of coconut oil (melted)

Ingredients for the toffee sauce
-180g of golden caster sugar
-65g of coconut milk (cream only)
-60ml of dairy-free milk (I use almond milk)

To make the sponge

Step 1- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees c and line a 24x24 square tin with grease-proof paper.

Step 2- De-stone the dates and place them in a bowl of hot water and allow to soak for 20 minutes.
Once soaked, drain them, then pop them into a food processor/blender and whizz up until mushy/soft.

Step 3- In a bowl, combine the almond milk with the apple cider vinegar and whisk until fully combined.

Set aside for 10 minutes to curdle. This creates a vegan 'buttermilk'.
Step 4- In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, ground cinnamon and ground ginger.
Mix well to combine.

Step 5- Add the melted coconut oil into the 'buttermilk' and whisk to combine.

Step 6- Add the wet ingredients and black treacle into the dry ingredients and mix.

Step 7- Fold in the dates. 

Step 8- Pour the batter into the lined tin.

Make sure to tap the tins on the worktop to remove any air bubbles.

Step 9- Pop the sponge into the centre of the preheated oven and bake for around 28-30 minutes.

You will know it's done when you put a knife or skewer in and it comes out clean and it is springy to the touch.

Step 10- Place the sponge on a cooling rack and allow to cool fully. 

Once cool, pop it into a sealed container to keep it fresh before serving.

To make the toffee sauce

Step 1- Place the sugar into a large pan over low/medium heat, stirring continuously until it begins to dissolve, then turn off the heat.
This will take around 10-15 minutes.

Step 2- When it's golden and liquid, add in the coconut cream and stir vigorously.

It will steam and bubble but keep stirring.

Step 3- Once the toffee cools down, pour in the dairy-free milk, stir until everything is dissolved.

Step 4- Place the pan back onto a low/medium heat bring it back to the boil.

It will begin to bubble, just keep stirring. 
Stir for around 1-2 minutes.

Step 5- Turn the heat off and pour into a heatproof bowl. Then, when cool pop into the fridge.

I like to allow my toffee to set overnight.

It turns into a thick and glossy sweet toffee sauce.

Drizzle over the sponge and enjoy.

You can store the toffee sauce in a jar in the fridge. It will last up to a week.
Store the sponge in a sealed container in the fridge and enjoy within a few days.

  1. I love sticky toffee pudding! Looks so delicious and tempting ♥

  2. Hi, is there anything I could sub for the treacle? I haven't found it where I'm living. Thanks!

  3. America in the 1900's was a largely agrarian society with most people living in rural areas and able to grow their own food. During the last century, a massive migration to urban areas has occurred. This has meant that even if one has the desire, most people no longer have the ability to produce self grown food.bee hive nucleus

  4. I'm a bit confused... Sticky toffee pudding is usually a steamed pudding and I'd expected this to be a pudding served hot, the sort you would eat with custard or ice cream melting over it. But the sponge and sauce, as they are pre-made and stored in the fridge, will both be cold when they are served - which I can't imagine would be quite as nice.
