Sticky date pudding - Yummmmmmm
A friend of mine gave me the easiest and tastiest recipe for Sticky Date Pudding the other day.
You have two options - you can cook it in the oven, which takes 55 minutes, or pop it in the microwave for 6 minutes. I guess it depends how long you can wait for this tasty dessert!!
We went the microwave option, we needed it pronto!
Here is the recipe for this taste sensation.
1 1/2 cups seed dried dates
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 tsp bicarb soda
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
60g chopped butter
1 cup of self raising flour
1 cup firmly packed sugar
100g chopped butter
300 ml cream
1 - preheat oven, if you are going to wait 55 minutes!
2 - Line a 22 cm round cake pan with baking paper
3 - Combine dates, bicarb soda, water in a food processor with the lid on, stand for 5 minutes
4 - Add sugar and butter to date mixture
5 - Process by pulsing for 5 seconds or until dates are roughly chopped
6 - Add eggs, then flour, mix
7 - Pour into pan
8 - Bake for 55 minutes in oven (if you can wait that long!), stand for 5 minutes. OR microwave on high for 6 minutes.
Then sit back, relax and eat (oh, and enjoy!)
