Sticky Date Pudding with Coffee Sauce

Sticky Date w Salted Caramel Sauce Crop small

Sticky date pudding with Coffee Sauce is a rich and moist cake that can soak up any wonderful sauce you serve it with. I have paired it with a coffee sauce made with palm sugar and I am sure you have started drooling just imagining what it would taste like! This pudding can be made like cupcakes and served without the sauce too.
