I was browsing through my recipes collection and was thinking what I can bake for a change from my usual bake. I stumbled onto this recipe, Sticky Date Pudding which makes me happy because then I can clear my dates that I have bought during the Ramandan period.

I prepared the dates mixture and was pretty disheartened by hubby's comments that he doubt it will be nice coz' of the sticky like mixture. Imagine, I continued the process hoping that he is wrong.

But thank god, it turned out well.

Verdict: Hubby said not bad.

Photobucket I modified the recipes to suit the taste of my family.

What I need:

250g dates, pitted and chopped
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
80g butter
100g sugar
2 eggs
170g self raising flour
1/2 tsp vanilla essence


Mix dates and bicardbonate of soda.

Pour 300ml boiling water over dates and leave to stand.

Cream butter and sugar until pale, then add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Gently fold in flour, stir in date mixutre adn vanilla.

Pour into a well buttered 18cm cake tin.

Bake at 180 degree celcius for 30 - 40 mins.

Serve with butterscotch sauce
