DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 190ºC/fan 170ºC/gas5.
  • Put dates in a saucepan with the whisky and 150ml water; Bring to the boil, then add the baking powder (it will froth a bit) and leave the dates to soak until cool.
  • Beat the butter and sugar until smooth and creamy.
  • Beat the eggs one at a time, stir in the flour, then the date mixture.
  • Pour into a buttered brownie tin 22cm square; Bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through (test with a skewer).
  • For the sauce, put the butter, muscovado sugar and double cream in a saucepan and bring it to the boil slowly, stirring, then simmer for 3 minutes.
  • When the pudding is ready, remove from the oven and pour over enough sauce to make a sticky glaze.
  • Return it to the oven for about 2 minutes.
  • Serve it cut into squares with more sauce poured over.
  • I served it with cream because I found it too sweet on its own although I don't have as much of a sweet tooth as many zaarites out there!
