Pumpkin isn’t just reserved for hearty savoury dishes – it makes a lovely addition to these soft little gluten-free puddings, spiked with cinnamon and studded with sticky sweet dates. So instead of carving up that pumpkin for your next Sunday roast, reserve it for this delicious aromatic dessert to finish off the meal.

Tip:

  • Cover the cake with aluminium foil if the top browns too quickly.
  • These little puddings are also great eaten cold the following day. They keep  well in an airtight container for several days (without topping), or can be individually wrapped and popped into the freezer.
  • You could try experimenting with sweet potato instead of pumpkin/squash.
