Baking Dish
Small sauce pan



• Boil the kettle. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. • Roughly chop pitted dates. • Pour 1/2 cup boiling water into a large heatproof bowl, then stir in dates. Set aside until water is 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 a saucepan. • Add basic sponge mix (see ingredients), brown sugar (see ingredients), melted butter and the eggs to the bowl with the dates and water. Mix until well combined.


• Generously grease the base and sides of the baking dish. Pour in pudding batter. Bake until just firm to the touch, 35-40 minutes. • When the pudding has 5 minutes remaining, heat a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook caramel sauce, whisking, until it starts to bubble, 4-5 minutes. • When the pudding is ready, poke a few holes in the pudding. Pour over caramel 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. • Enjoy!
