Sticky Date Pudding

We had a friend over for dinner on Sunday night and my husband requested one his favourites, Sticky Date Pudding, so I went to my blog to find the recipe only to realise that I hadn't put it on! Luckily a quick internet search found me the exact recipe I first made for him 16 years ago. So thanks to Jill Dupleax here is Sticky Date Pudding!

Ingredients

1 cup dates, pitted and chopped
1 tsp bi carb soda
1 cup boiling water
2 tbsp butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups Self Raising Flour

Sauce

1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup cream
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp butter

Method
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees
  • Place dates in a small bowl and sprinkle the bi carb soda over the top
  • Pour over the boiling water and set aside to soak
  • Beat butter and sugar until creamy, then beat in eggs one at a time
  • Mix through the flour and then the date mixture
  • Place in a greased pudding dish or cake tin
  • Bake in oven for 30 - 40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean
Sauce
  • Place all ingredients in a small saucepan, heat slowly until butter is melted, sugar dissolved and the ingredients are combined.
  • Pour sauce over slice of pudding and serve with fresh cream or ice cream
