  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt

For The Homemade Caramel


  • Preheat the oven to 355 F, spray muffin tin cavities with a thin coating of cooking spray and dust with some flour or cocoa powder.
  • In a medium bowl pour boiling water over chopped dates and sprinkle with baking soda. Mix well.
  • In a large bowl combine grapeseed oil, sugar and egg. Give it a whisk.
  • In a separate medium bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt and add everything to the egg and sugar mixture. Mix well, add softened dates and mix again.
  • Divide the batter equally among the muffin tin cavities, cover with a foil and bake for 25 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
  • Take puddings out of the oven, carefully remove from the muffin tin and cool on the wire rack.

For The Homemade Caramel

  • Put a small pot on a high heat, add sugar, heavy cream, butter and a pinch of salt and mix the ingredients. Wait until sugar dissolves, reduce the heat to low and cook until caramel becomes amber or dark brown in color, about 5 minutes.

To Serve
