Vegan Treacle Pudding

This sumptuous, traditional European pudding is a satisfying treat that is perfect after any meal or with afternoon tea! It’s not up there with my healthiest desserts, but still has nutritious value and it really is delicious and is something that all the family can enjoy and a great one if you are looking to impress non-vegans!
