Sticky Date Cake
A healthier twist on the classic pudding, this sticky date cake is moist, sweet, and indulgent. Made with our Salted Caramel Raw Protein Paleo Fermented and topped with a homemade salted caramel sauce, it’s best served with vanilla dairy-free ice cream. The sauce is made from just 4 ingredients and it’s something you can serve will all kinds of different desserts (we recommend drizzling it on brownies or ice cream).
Whip this recipe out at your next dinner party when you need to impress your friends! It even has the benefit of added protein and nutrients thanks to our Paleo Protein (so you can tell them it’s healthy!). This protein is specifically designed to be gentle on digestion. It has sprouted and fermented plant protein, fermented greens and seeds, and added digestive enzymes to help the body break down and absorb nutrients.
We recommend serving your sticky date cake warm with dairy-free vanilla icecream. If you give this recipe a go, remember to tag us (@amazoniaco) on Instagram – we love seeing your creations!
