- Why didn't we win lotto? (well it would help if we remembered to buy the ticket)
- How do the kids know to lose their shoe on a day you can't be late to school?
- Why has it taken me two-and-a-half-years to share this recipe?
To be honest, I thought I had. I cleaned out my pantry last weekend and I had two big packet of dates - and don't get me wrong - the frills eat them, sometimes I need to hide them. But two big packets, I thought it was begging to be made into a sticky date pudding... and my hubby loves them... and... I'm spoiling him a little at the moment as he's just come home from hospital. (Back surgery, he's on the mend!)
So I came on to this very blog and I searched. And I searched again. Hmm.. surely I have blogged this? I have definitely made this in the past 2 years, I have it on a scrap of paper from a friend's Mum... hmmm? No, I had NOT. I was a little surprised and excited!
So here it is, the absolutely simple, amazing and DELICIOUS sticky date pudding - with built in sauce.. go crazy!
200g dried pitted dates, roughly chopped
1 tsp bicarb soda
1 3/4 cups brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 3/4 cups self raising flour
In a bowl, mix through the bicarb soda with the dates. Pour over a cup of boiling water and let stand for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 190 degrees c
Cream margarine and 3/4 cup of the brown sugar together and then add eggs and cinnamon and flour.
Lastly mix through the dates (with liquid) and mix until well combined. Pour into greased baking dish and scatter with remaining cup of brown sugar.
Mix 1 tb margarine into a cup of boiling water.
Serve with cream or icecream!
So friends, tell me - you going to try this and also, what's world's greatest mystery to YOU?
