Pecan Flour Sticky Date Pudding with Caramel Sauce

Its no secret here at Pepo Farms that we're pretty smitten with our newest edition to the Artisan Mill Family; Pecan Flour and Pecan Oil. The pecan flour has a delicious nutty caramel flavour with a rich texture that is perfect for baking. Here Scott has amplified the caramel flavours of the much loved sticky date using pecan flour. The result is a decadent and moorish treat, perfect for dessert on a cold night by the warmth of a fire!
