Wow. This recipe is just wow! It is the best sticky date pudding I have EVER had including those at restaurants. It is so simple to make and the result is a moist, fluffy pudding bursting with flavour. The sauce is just the perfect addition. You can make it as a cake or I made it in to individual puddings which were just adorable. A real winner!





Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Makes: 6-8 servings

Ingredients

290g pitted dates, chopped finely

1 tsp baking of soda

1 1/2 cups boiling water

125g butter, softened

1 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs

1 3/4 cups self-raising flour, sifted



Butterscotch Sauce

1 cup brown sugar

300ml thickened cream

1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

60 g butter

Method
Place dates and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl. Pour over boiling water. Allow to stand for 20 minutes.
Beat butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold through date mixture and flour until well combined. (Mixture will be a bit runny)
Spoon mixture into prepared cake pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan/tin for 10 mintues before turning out on to a plate.
Make sauce by combining all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, until sauce comes to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 2 minutes.
Pierce pudding all over with a skewer. Pour 1/2 cup of warm sauce over warm pudding. Stand for 10 minutes before serving with remaining sauce and vanilla ice-cream!!
