DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4).
  • Lighly brush a deep 6 cup (1,5 litre) capacity ovenproof dish with melted butter or oil.
  • Place the dates and baking soda in a bowl and pour over 1 cup (250 ml/8 fl oz) boiling water and set aside to cool (the mixture will become foamy).
  • Beat the butter and sugar with electric beaters until light and creamy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition.
  • Fold in the sifted flour and baking powder, walnuts and date mixture.
  • Stir until all the ingredients are just combined and pour into the prepared dish.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, or until slightly risen and firm to touch.
  • Whilst the pudding is cooking, prepare the syrup: place the sugar, butter, vanilla, brandy and 1/3 cup (80 ml/2 and 3/4 fl oz) water in a pan and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Prick a few holes in the pudding with a skewer, pour the syrup over.
  • Return to the oven for 5 minutes while the sauce soaks in . Serve with cream or natural yoghurt.
