Sticky Date Pudding

Sticky Date Pudding

Posted 2012-12-28 by Bastion Harrisonfollow


Steamed puddings have been around for donkey's years, so it is quite surprising to think that sticky toffee pudding, a traditional British pudding, has only been around since the 1970s. According to [I]The Guardian[/I], it was invented by Francis Coulson from the Lake District at Sharrow Bay Hotel.

As mine is a little different from the original, I have called it sticky date pudding instead. For one, my pudding is not steamed, but baked, and is actually a cake. I also use syrup rather than toffee. Both are equally as delicious though. Based on the brands I used, each serving is about 372 calories.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients
220g pitted dates
150g Xylitol sweetener (or caster sugar if you prefer)
260g self-raising flour
60g soya butter
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 large eggs
220ml water
2 tbsp date syrup

Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190 & #3872 ;C/ 170 & #3872 ;C fan/370 & #3872 ;F/5 Gas
  • Boil the dates in water for 5 minutes, then stir in the bicarbonate of soda.
  • Cream the butter and sweetener/sugar together, then beat in the eggs.
  • Fold the flour into the mixture.
  • Drain the dates (retaining the juices) and stir into the cake mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into a cake tin and bake.
  • Skewer holes into the top of the cakes and pour the drained juices over the top.
  • Drizzle the date syrup over the cake.
