Time to unwind and indulge with our popular Sticky Date Pudding recipe! Soft spongy pudding, trickled with butterscotch sauce and topped with a dollop of cream! YES PLEASE!


  • 200g Dates pitted and chopped
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
  • 120g Butter, softened
  • 400g Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 200g Self raising Flour
  • 300ml Pure cream
  • 3/4 cup Water

Step 1

PUDDINGS: In a small mixing bowl add chopped dates, ¾ cup boiling water and stir through bicarb (it will start to foam), let stand for 10 minutes.

Step 2

In large mixing bowl whisk 60g softened butter with 150g sugar until creamy.

Step 3

Add eggs one at time, beating well between each egg.

Step 4

Add flour and date mixture and stir to combine all ingredients.

Step 5

Pour batter evenly into 6 1-cup muffin cups for large puddings (or 12 1-cups for mid-size puddings) and place them in the steamer.

Step 6

Bring water to boil in the wok. Add steamer. Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes.

Step 7

BUTTERSCOTCH SAUCE: Combine remaining sugar and butter, with the cream in a saucepan. Stir well. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes.

Step 8

Turn out the warm puddings. Pour over the butterscotch sauce and serve with cream or ice-cream. Careful - they're moorish.

Chef's Tips

As this is steamed, it remains very light when substituting rice flour or other gluten-free flours.
