Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 50 minutes


  • Melted butter, to grease
  • 285g (1 3/4 cups) pitted dates, halved
  • 250ml (1 cup) boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 80g butter, at room temperature
  • 100g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 115g (3/4 cup) self-raising flour, sifted
  • 75g (1/2 cup) plain flour, sifted
  • 185ml (3/4 cup) pouring cream
  • 160g (1 cup, lightly packed) brown sugar
  • 60g unsalted butter, chopped
  • Double cream or custard to serve


  • Step 1 Preheat slow cooker on low. Brush or spray chosen mini bowls or cups for individual servings
  • Step 2 Combine the dates, water and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes to soften. Use a fork to coarsely mash or process the dates before soaking.
  • Step 3 Use an electric beater to beat the butter and caster sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold in the date mixture and the combined flour. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pans and smooth the surfaces. Cook for 1.5 to 2 hours on low (depends on individual slow cookers) or until the surfaces spring back when lightly tapped.
  • Use a tea towel under the lid while cooking to stop moisture. Set aside for 5 minutes to stand before turning onto a wire rack to cool slightly.
  • Step 4 Meanwhile, place the pouring cream, brown sugar and unsalted butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until smooth.
  • Step 5 Top with double cream or custard and drizzle over the sauce to serve.
