2 cups dried baking dates

1 cup water

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 ripe All Good Banana

½ cup coconut sugar

1 3/4 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

1 teaspoon ground ginger (optional)

½ cup All Good Barista Blend Oat Milk

½ cup melted coconut oil

2 teaspoons good quality vanilla essence

Additional All Good Banana to top the pudding


Serves 6

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Place the dates and water in a small saucepan. Bring water to a boil. Turn off heat, stir through the baking soda and leave to soften for 10 or 15 minutes.

Place the dates and the soaking water in a food processor. Peel the banana, break it onto chunks and add this to the food processor also. Blitz these until you have a mostly smooth paste. Add the remaining ingredients and mix only as much as is needed to bring the ingredients together. Do not over mix.

Spoon into a well greased oven-proof dish and smooth out the top. Peel the second banana, halve lengthways and lay cut-side up on top of the batter.

Bake for 40-45 minutes until springy and a skewer is mostly clean when inserted.

Leave the pudding to sit for 15 minutes (or up to 1 hour) before serving.

Enjoy with vegan ice cream.
