Nutritional values

The variation of the English date toffee pudding is quite rich in content, but still relatively low in fat. The finely sour compote perfectly complements the sweetness of the dates and provides a thick portion of vitamin C.

Those who are not so keen on one or the other calorie may treat themselves to a portion of whipped cream to top off this irresistible treat.
