Yes, I do suck. But to make up for it, here's the best Sticky Date Pudding Recipe ever!
2 cups dates, chopped
1 1/2 tsp bi carb soda
1 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 cup self raising flour
1 tsp each of ginger and mixed spice
Put the dates in a pan with 1 3/4 cups of water. Bring to the boil and then remove fro the heat. Stir in the bi carb and spices and then set aside for 5 minutes. Meanwhile cream the butter and sugar. Then stir in the eggs one at a time, mixing well in between each addition. Fold in the flour and the date mixture until smooth. Pour into a well greased springform tin and cook for 1 hour at 180c.
To make butterscotch sauce combine 150g butter, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/3 cup golden syrup and 3/4 cup cream in a pan and stir over a low heat until combined and thickened slightly.
Now, don't eat too much at once! It gave me a tummy ache this Saturday!
