Sticky Date Pudding

  • 150g caster sugar
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 250g dates, pitted and chopped roughly
  • 250ml hot water
  • 1.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger

Sticky Toffee Sauce

  • 125g butter
  • 130g dark brown sugar
  • 125g golden syrup
  • 1 vanilla pod, halved and seeds scraped out
  • 200ml double cream


  1. For the pudding, add the dates and bicarbonate of soda to the hot water and leave to soak until soft. Meanwhile, beat the butter and sugar together.
  2. Add the syrup to the butter & sugar mix. Sift the flour, cinnamon and ginger together, and add to the mix as well, until smooth.
  3. Pour mixture into a large tray, and bake for approx. 30 minutes at 150⁰C. A knife inserted into the middle of the mixture should come out clean when cooked.
  4. For the sauce, boil the butter, sugar, syrup and vanilla pod & seeds for 10 minutes. Add the cream and boil for another 10 minutes.
