DIRECTIONS

  • For Pudding:
  • Combine dates in a pan with 300ml water, bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat, stir in bicarb soda and set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well each time.
  • Fold in flour with a large metal spoon, stir in date mixture and vanilla and pour into a greased 18cm square cake tin.
  • Bake in a 160°C oven for 50 minutes, or until cooked when tested with a skewer.
  • For Sauce:
  • Combine sugar and butter in a pan and stir over low heat until melted. Add cream and vinegar, bring to a boil, remove from heat and serve warm, not hot.
  • Note:
  • I have made a double batch of the pudding in a kugelhopf pan, just make sure you prepare the pan well. I then fill the centre with strawberries or cherries and serve the sauce on the side. Makes a beautiful alternative Christmas Pudding.
