My Mom and Grandmother used to make date pudding for special occassions and I did not get the family recipe before they passed, so I went in search of one that I could make (I have never tried to make date pudding before). This was deliciously gooey, yummy and easy to make. This recipe is even better than the family recipe as it is much more gooey than any I have ever had before. This best serve warm with a large dollop of whipped cream on the top.
Very sticky and delicious - just like the Amish make! I made this for Christmas dinner and everyone loved it. After it finished baking, I cut the cake into 1-inch squares and folded the sauce over the top (makes the cake ooey-gooey). Then, I served with whipped cream.
It more than pleased Chia, not only me and my family but also my dear aunt whom I went to visit for a couple of days. Thank you. Did not change a thing except doubling the recipe and I am glad that I did. :D Served with whipped cream at home and with vanilla icecream at my aunt's place. Stupendous!!! :)Fay
