      I also cut down on the sugar and realised when it was too late to go to the supermarket that I didn't have enough brown sugar for the sauce so I substituted white sugar. If I was to make this one again, I would use better quality dates, make sure I had enough brown sugar and cut the nutmeg by half as I found it quite overwhelming.

      I usually don't like things overly sweet, so I took the advice of other reviewers and cut the sugar back...1 cup in the sauce and 1/4 cup in the pudding. That said, I have never done much cooking with dates and we enjoyed this. I did freeze the leftovers, I hope it will be ok. Thanks for posting, loof. Made for ZWT 6, Zingo.
