Boil the kettle. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Roughly chop dates. Pour 1/2 cup boiling water into a large heatproof bowl and add the dates. Stir and set aside until lukewarm, 10 minutes.

TIP: Reserve the water as it's used in step 2!


While the dates are soaking, melt the butter in the microwave or in a saucepan. Add basic sponge mix (see ingredients), brown sugar (see ingredients), butter and eggs to the bowl with dates and water and mix until well combined.


Generously grease the base and sides of the baking dish and pour in sticky date batter. Bake until just firm to the touch, 35-40 minutes. When the pudding has 5 minutes cook time remaining, heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook caramel sauce, whisking, until it starts to bubble, 4-5 minutes. Poke a few holes in top of pudding and pour over sauce.

TIP: To check if the pudding is done, stick a toothpick or skewer in the centre. It should come out clean.


Divide sticky date pudding between bowls. Serve with light cooking cream.
