Sticky Date and Maple Pudding

This is definitely one of my favourites! Serve as either individual desserts or enjoy a slice with a dollop of cream over a coffee with friends. Heres a great entertaining tip; make the individual desserts the night before and heat in the microwave until warm, just before serving.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dates, cut in halves
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup Cottee's Maple Flavoured Syrup
  • 1 cup self-rising flour

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. In a bowl, combine dates, baking soda and boiling water, allow to stand for 15 minutes or until the dates have softened and cooled.

3. Mix butter and sugar together, add egg and 1/4 cup Cottee's Maple Flavoured Syrup, beating well.

4. Sift the flour and gently fold in with dates.

5. Pour remaining 1/4 cup Cottee's Maple Flavoured Syrup into the base of a 9-inch round cake tin lined with wax paper. Spoon over the cake batter.

6. Bake for about 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Serve cut into wedges with extra syrup on the side.

7. Alternatively, put 2 teaspoons Cottee's Maple Flavoured Syrup into the base of 6 greased ramekins, divide the batter evenly between them. Place on a baking tray and bake as above for 25-30 minutes.
