Ingredients

Sticky Date Pudding

  • 210 g dates, seeded
  • 260 g boiling water
  • 1 tsp bi-carb soda
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 60 g butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 140 g SR Flour

Caramel Sauce

  • 140 g brown sugar
  • 100 g butter
  • 250 g cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

 

Method

Sticky Date Pudding

Preheat oven to 180C.

Grease 20cm square tin or a muffin tray.

Combine dates, boiling water and soda in a bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Add sugar and butter to mixture and process on speed 6 – 7 for 10 seconds until dates are chopped.

Scrape down and add flour first, then eggs and and process on speed 4 – 5 for 5 seconds at a time until combined.

Pour into prepared tin or large muffin cups. (Makes 9 large muffins)

Bake for 15 – 17 minutes in a moderate oven for muffins and 20 – 25 for larger tin.

Stand for 5 minutes before turning out.

 

Caramel Sauce

Place all into TM bowl and cook on 80C, speed 1 for 2 minutes until butter has melted.

Cook for another 5 – 8 minutes on Varoma, speed 2. Sauce will thicken on standing.

 

Tip

Use thickened cream or add more butter if you would like the sauce to be a little thicker.

Alternatively, cook it longer.

Try this with Rapadura sugar for a lovely butterscotch flavour. For a more dense, but higher fibre pudding, use wholemeal self raising flour.
