Poor Man’s Pudding

Poor Man's Pudding



For the Cake:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons aquafaba
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup coconut milk


Preheat oven to 200˚C (400˚F) and grease a square baking pan (8-in x 8-in). In a large mixing bowl, sift flour and baking powder. In another bowl, beat the butter and sugar into a cream. Add the aquafaba, the milk and the vanilla extract. Mix until you get a smooth consistency. Add the dry ingredients (flour and baking powder) and mix just enough to combine. Whisk the sauce ingredients directly in the bottom of the baking pan until well-combined. Using a spoon, place dollops of the dough on top of the sauce. Place in the oven and bake for approximately 35 minutes. Take out, let cool slightly and enjoy. Bon appétit!
