    Sherrie-pie's Note:

    South Africans love this pudding. The recipe is up on the site but this is the one I took to our "do" at MarieAlice's house and I promised to post it. It's a dark brown date pudding which is drowned in a brandy and butter sauce. Serve with cream. Prep and cooking times are approx.

    1. 1
      Mix the bicarbonate of soda with the boiling water and pour over the dates. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Cream the butter and sugar well and then beat in the eggs. Mix in the flour and the nuts and finally stir in the dates and water in which they have soaked. Turn into a buttered, shallow ovenproof dish and bake at 190C for 40 - 50 minutes.
    2. 2
      To make the sauce: Mix the butter, brown sugar and water and boil, until it forms a syrup. Remove from the heat stir in the vanilla and brandy. Pour the sauce over the hot pudding and allow it to soak inches.

      Thanks you so much for posting this recipe Sherrie-pie. I would give this more than 5 stars if I could - it is a wonderful 'comfort' dessert with the brandy giving it a touch of 'glamour'. Delicious!
