HFG tip

What we did

  • Sticky date pudding is usually full of sugar, but we used just a little maple syrup and golden syrup to give enough flavour and sweetness for a third of the sugars per portion.
  • We skipped the butter and cream used in many toffee sauces and instead used light evaporated milk. We also swapped the butter in the classic pudding recipe for low-fat Greek-style yoghurt, giving not only a light texture but also a pudding that’s much lower in saturated fat and sodium.
