Christmas Date Pudding with Kentucky Bourbon Sauce

Do you want something with an off the hook “YUM-O factor?” Something VERY sweet... VERY sinful and decadent? Something special with a VERY HIGH “WOW-factor” to impress the family or friends Christmas Eve or for Christmas dinner? Well... this is it! Let me warn you... IT IS SWEET...SWEET..SWEET! Yummy Sweet!!

I took this traditional bread pudding that my Mom used to make and modified it for us Vegans and Vegetarians..... But let me warn all you meat eaters... this will rock your world, too!!

Traditionally this pudding, as well as other bread puddings, is made with eggs, butter, cream and white sugar. So, with a few changes here and there......tah dah..... I came up with this little holiday delight. I did manage to keep the most important ingredient..... the Kentucky Bourbon... there is NO sub for that!
Ok..ok... had some emails regarding my use of "fake" eggs... and if you have followed my blog or if you know me... I don't favor anything fake or processed.... including tofu, but, for this.... egg sub was the best thing that I came up with that would work.

As Always... I DO Organic as much as possible.

I hope you enjoy it!

3/4 c. Agave or Brown Molasses
3/4 c. Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 c. Oat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 T. Mexican cinnamon
1/2 c. chopped dates
½ c. dried cranberries
3/4 c. chopped walnuts or pecans
1 c. brown sugar
1 T.Coconut Oil
1 T. Mexican vanilla
1 c. boiling water

Mix flour, baking powder & cinnamon with Agave or molasses and milk. Add dates, dried cranberries and nuts. Pour this mixture into either a greased 9" square pan or into little individual pudding dishes....Ok, just thought of the name for these little guys...Ramekins. Then combine brown sugar, coconut oil, vanilla and boiling water and carefully pour over batter mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. A little less time for the individual pans. Keep an eye on them and test for doneness with toothpick Turn off heat and leave in oven for 8 to 15 more minutes.

Dip out bread onto dessert dish and drizzle with Kentucky Bourbon sauce. Or, if baking in dessert bowls, drizzle sauce over each bowl.


¼ cup Coconut Oil (preferably flavored)
1 c. Agave
1/4 c. water
¼ c. Egg substitute
2 T. to 1/4 c. Kentucky bourbon whiskey
In a medium-size saucepan over LOW heat add coconut oil, agave and egg substitute whisking to blend well. Cook, STIRRING CONSTANTLY, until mixture thickens.

Until Next Time......
Wishing You a Very Peaceful, Safe and Healthy Christmas Eve!
