A Fantastic warming winter pudding!

Ingredients

  • 250g pitted dates, chopped
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1½ cups boiling water
  • 125g butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ cups self-raising flour, sifted
  • Caramel sauce - 1 cup brown sugar
  • 300ml cream
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 60g butter

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base of a 7cm deep, 22cm (base) cake pan.

Step 2

Place dates and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl. Pour over boiling water. Allow to stand for 20 minutes.

Step 3

Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then, using a large metal spoon, fold through prepared date mixture and add flour until well combined.

Step 4

Spoon mixture into prepared cake pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Turn onto a plate.

Step 5

Make sauce. Combine 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.

Step 6

Pierce pudding all over with a skewer. Pour ½ cup of warm sauce over warm pudding. Stand for 10 minutes. Cut into wedges. Serve with remaining sauce and fresh cream.
