  • 200 ml water
  • 200 g pitted dates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 90 g butter
  • ½ cup 100g caster sugar
  • ¼ cup 50g brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 180 g self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • For the Caramel Sauce
  • ¾ cup 150g brown sugar
  • 140 g butter
  • 120 ml cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and lightly grease a 22cm round baking dish.
  • Roughly chop the pitted dates and place them into a saucepan with the water. Cook over a medium heat, allowing the mixture to come to the boil, before reducing the heat and cooking for a further 3 minutes.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the vanilla extract and bicarb soda and mix through.
  • Place the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and mix for 5 minutes or until it's pale and creamy.
  • With the mixer on a low speed, add the eggs one at a time and beat well between each addition.
  • Add the flour and cinnamon and continue to mix on a low speed to combine.
  • Remove the mixer bowl from the stand and add the date mixture and use a large spoon to mix to combine. Transfer the mixture to your prepared baking dish and bake for 35 minutes or until the pudding has cooked through in the middle when tested with a skewer.
  • You can begin to make the caramel sauce when the pudding has almost finished cooking. Place all of the sauce ingredients into a saucepan and cook over a medium heat, stirring until the Caramel Sauce is smooth. Increase the heat of your cooktop slightly and let the mixture come to the boil and cook for a further 3 minutes before carefully drizzling the caramel sauce over the top of the cooked pudding and serving immediately.
