    1 cup chopped pitted dates

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    90 g (3 1/4 oz.) butter, softened

    115 g (1/2 cup) soft brown sugar

    2 eggs, lightly beaten

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    185 g (1 1/2 cups) self-rising flour


    230 g (1 cup) soft brown sugar

    250 ml (1 cup) cream

    90 g (3 1/4 oz.) butter

    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    1. Preheat oven to 180 (350 F/Gas 4). Brush an 18 cm (7 inch) sqaure cake pan with melted butter and line with parchment paper. Put the dates and baking soda in a bowl and add 250 ml (1 cup) boiling water. Stir and leave for 15 minutes.

    2. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Beat in the eggs gradually. Add the vanilla extract. Fold in half of the flour then half of the date mixture. Stir in remaining flour and dates, mixing well. Pour into the prepared cake pan and bake for about 50 minutes, or until cooked when tested with a skewer. (Skewer comes out clean, with little crumb sticking to it.) Leave to cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto serving plate.

    3. To make the sauce, put all of the sauce ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil while stirring. Reduce heat, and watching carefull, simmer for 5 minutes. Pour over warm pudding and serve.

    If you don't mind apricots you could try this recipe:

    Apricot Sticky Toffee Pudding

    Pudding base :

    - 200 g dried apricots, pitted and quartered

    - 1 tsp baking soda

    - 1 C boiling water

    - 2 Tbsp (30 g) butter

    - 1 C (200 g) brown sugar

    - 2 eggs

    - 1 1/2 C (180g) flour

    - 2 tsp baking powder

    - 1/2 tsp salt

    Toffee sauce :

    - 1 C (200 g) brown sugar

    - 3/4 C (20 cl) whipping cream

    - 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

    - 2Tbsp (30 g) butter

    (Serves 8.)

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (360°F), and lightly butter a 7'' (18 cm) square or round cake pan.

    Combine the apricots and the baking soda in a heatproof bowl. Add the boiling water, stir, and leave to stand.

    In a food processor (Jill does it by hand), mix a cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the eggs one by one, mixing well after each addition. Add in the flour (sifted if you're hand-mixing), baking powder and salt, mix well. Add the apricots and their water, and mix again thoroughly.

    Pour the batter into the cake pan, and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until puffed and golden. Jill recommends using a skewer to test the cake for doneness (it is ready when the skewer comes out clean), but my wooden skewer still came out with moist crumbs after 40 minutes, and the result was fine.

    To make the sauce, combine the sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan, large enough to allow the mixture to rise when it boils. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Simmer for five minutes, without stirring, until thick and golden brown. Set aside, and reheat just before serving.

    The pudding and the sauce should be served warm. Glaze the whole pudding with the sauce, or cut the pudding into slices or squares and pour the sauce over each serving. I am told sticky toffee pudding is often served with custard, fresh cream, ice-cream or yogurt, but it's also fine as is, washed down with a cup of good tea.

    or for a simple sticky toffee pudding just make a good bread pudding of your choice and put this sauce on top

    Sticky Toffee Sauce


    3/8 c unsalted butter .

    2 tbsps dark corn syrup .

    3/4 c soft dark brown sugar, plus .

    I hate dates with a keenness yet discovered that in case you stick to a sticky-toffee pudding recipe yet spend quite time reducing the dates fairly finely into purely approximately a paste you do no longer understand they are there. i assume which you would be waiting to easily do a sponge pudding blend and use muscovado sugar rather of caster to furnish it quite darkness and flavour.
