  • Directions for Pudding:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Chop the dates as finely as you prefer (if you like chunks in your cake, keep them bigger, but I usually like small small pieces).
  • Boil the water and pour over the dates. Add the baking powder, baking soda, and vanilla extract. Let soak for about 5 minutes or so.
  • While the dates soak, cream the softened butter and sugar with a mixer (paddle attachment helps).
  • Add the egg and beat until combined and smooth. Add the flour.
  • Stir in soaked date mixture and mix until combined.
  • Place into 8 x 8 (or something similar) greased baking tray and bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees. Toothpick or knife should come out clean when done. Be sure to check at 30 minutes, since oven times may vary.
  • Directions for sauce:
  • Melt butter in saucepan.
  • Add brown sugar and cream, bring to a boil.
  • Boil for 2-3 mins until texture is slightly fudgy and velvety.
  • Serve cake warm with warm sauce. We add the cooled sauce to the top of the cake and warm in microwave for 20 seconds, then top with a dollop of whipped cream or cool whip.
  • The more sauce you use, the stickier the wicket!
