This recipe is courtesy of Weight Watchers and has only 5 ProPoints value per serve.


Ingredients (serves 16)

  • 180g pitted dates, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 50g Weight Watchers Canola Spread
  • 1⁄2 cup (110g) brown sugar
  • Plus 1⁄4 cup (55g) extra brown sugar for sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 11⁄2 cups (225g) self-raising flour
  • 185ml can reduced-fat evaporated milk
  • 1 cup (250ml) reduced-fat vanilla custard


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Lightly spray an 18cm x 28cm slice tin with oil. Place dates and bicarbonate of soda in a heatproof bowl and pour over 1 cup (250ml) boiling water. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Using electric beaters, beat the spread, 1⁄2 cup (110g) brown sugar and eggs in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in flour and date mixture. Pour into prepared tin and bake for 25 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.
  3. Meanwhile, stir evaporated milk and remaining brown sugar in a small saucepan over low heat until sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  4. Cut pudding into portions and serve drizzled with sauce and custard.


The pudding (without sauce or custard) is suitable to freeze. Cut cooled pudding into individual portions and wrap each portion in plastic wrap and foil. Label, date and freeze for up to 3 months.

  • Sticky date pudding is a firm Winter favourite. :)


  • Love that cake it looks unbelievable


  • A beautiful looking stick date dessert,love it!


  • This is a lovely winter warmer.


  • This sounds so easy – I just might make this for my husband so he doesn’t always try to order it when we are out.

    • Homemade desserts are always so good too – lots of opportunities for seconds too!


  • LOVE a good sticky date pud-with ice cream AND custard.


  • Unfortunately I don’t really like fruit in a pudding. If I made this I’d have to mince the dates, I love the taste of it but not the chunks of fruit so when it’s served at work, I pick out the dates and put them to the side.


  • Ooh, this seems way too easy to make. We love sticky date but I tend to buy it. It’s such a decadent dessert, but interestingly a WW version. YUMMM.


  • My daughter doesn’t like cake so I make this for her birthday. She loves it with a scoop of macadamia ice cream


  • I love sticky date pudding but have never tried to make it. Your recipe doesn’t look as complicated as I had expected. Thank you so much for sharing.


  • One of my all time favs. Thanks for sharing.


  • Yum! Never tried making this before. Thanks!


  • Yum, I adore sticky date pudding. Probably about time I tried to make it myself!


  • *Drool* this looks like a perfect winter dessert and a perfect summer dessert with ice cream. It looks like a perfect dessert all the time!


  • WOW love a good sticky date pudding.
