Ingredients
 

Pudding

  • 250g pitted fresh dates, diced fine. (Appox. 300g when purchased with pits in)
  • 1 tsp bicarb of soda
  • 1 ¼ cups boiling water
  • 100g butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups self raising flour

Sauce

  • 300ml cooking cream
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 80g butter

Instructions
 

  • Place dates, bicarb and boiling water in bowl to soak for 15mins
  • Line slow cooker with baking paper and spritz lightly with non stick spray
  • Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla
  • Add eggs one at a time and combine each one into the mix
  • Add flour and soaked dates mixture (with any remaining water included) and fold through to combine
  • Pour this pudding mix into a slow cooker lined with baking paper
  • Cook on HIGH with tea towel trick for approx. 1hr 10minutes, or until cooked through when skewer inserted in middle comes out clean
  • (Times will vary between slow cookers as the larger the cooker the thinner the pudding and the faster it will cook. I used a 5L slow cooker for this recipe)
  • Turn slow cooker off but leave pudding sit in the warm cooker while you make the sauce
  • On stove top combine all sauce ingredients.
  • Stir as you bring it to the boil then turn back to a simmer for 5-10mins until thickened slightly. Stirring continuously. Remove from heat.
  • Lift pudding out of slow cooker by baking paper and place on serving dish. Poke holes all over the pudding with a wooden skewer. Pour half of the sauce mix over the pudding slowly to allow it to soak down through these holes.
  • Slice pudding into serves and use remaining sauce to drizzle over each plate when served. Add vanilla ice cream on the side and enjoy this amazing sweet treat!
