The only reason why I have not posted this recipe up despite making it for the past 3-4 years is that I just can’t take a decent photo out of it! grr…
This is still the best sticky date pudding recipe that I have tried. It’s gooey, sticky (duh!) and the right amount of sweetness.
Now, I just have to master the art of phototaking…
160 grams brown sugar
250 ml cream
200 grams butter
Pre heat oven to 180C.
Bring dates and water in saucepan to boil. Mix in bicarb soda and cool.
Cream butter and sugar till pale. Add eggs. Sift in flour. Add date mixture and vanilla and mix well. Pour into large rectangular ceramic dish and bake for around 30 minutes.
To make sauce: Put sugar, cream and butter in a pan over medium heat. Mix till well combined and smooth. Bring to boil,. remove from heat and cool.
Pour sauce over pudding. Return to the oven for around 5 more mins. Serve with ice-cream.
ps- i always ended up with too much sauce so I just reserve it and use it for other cakes or ice-cream.
pps- I like to make this when invited to dinner parties because it can easily feed around 15 people!
