1 cup dates (180g) -- pitted and chopped
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 cup boiling water
2 TBSP butter
1 cup soft brown sugar (150 g)
2 eggs.
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour (180 g) -- sifted

Toffee Sauce:
1 cup soft brown sugar (150 g)
3/4 cup light whipping cream.
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 TBSP butter


Mix dates and baking soda in a heat-proof bowl. Pour boiling water on top
and leave to stand. Cream butter and sugar until pale, then add eggs one
at a time, heating well after each addition. Gently fold in sifted flour,
stir in the date mixture, and pour into a lightly buttered 18cm or 7"
square or round cake tin. Bake in a preheated oven (180 C) for 30-40
minutes, until an inserted skewer comes clean.

Combine sugar, cream, vanilla essence and butter in a saucepan, bring to the boil, stirring, and simmer for five minutes. Set aside until ready to
serve, then quickly reheat when needed. Cut pudding into squares and place each square in the centre of a warm dinner plate. Pour hot toffee sauce over each square and serve with fresh cream.
