“This recipe is out of a pudding cookbook and is delicious! Notes: The sauce is to be served hot but the pudding can be cold, do not be put of by the amount of sugar-it will be worth it and do not mind if you do not like dates, I do not but this is my favourite pudding...ever! Also the cooking time may be longer in a non-fan oven and it is easier if the ingredients are ready prepared but not crucial. Enjoy xxx”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the pudding, put the dates and bicarbonate of soda in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water and leave to soak.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180c/350f/gas mark 4.
  3. Grease a cake tin (round or square) 20cm diameter, with butter.
  4. Put the remaining butter in a separate bowl, add sugar, and mix well.
  5. Beat the eggs then fold in the flour.
  6. Drain the soaked dates, add to the bowl and mix.
  7. Spoon the mixture evenly into the prepared cake tin.
  8. Transfer to the preheated oven and bake for 25-30mins(longer for a non fan oven). The pudding is cooked when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  9. About 5-10mins before the end of the cooking time, make the sauce.
  10. Melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat.
  11. Stir in the cream and the sugar and bring to the boil, stirring constantly.
  12. Lower the heat and simmer for 5mins.
  13. Turn out the pudding on to a serving plate, decorate with the orange rind, serve the sauce in a jug as you would do cream and serve per person.
