Sticky Date Pudding
Nothing comforts on a cold day like a hot, steamy pudding. What if you don't have to plan ahead for a traditional pudding packed full of Australian dates. Try this 'quicky' date pudding - it takes only 14 minutes to cook in the microwave and tastes every bit as good as the old fashioned recipe.Content information

1. Put dates, water, butter and ginger in a large flat pie dish (approx 23cm across and 5cm high) and microwave on high until butter is melted (maybe 1-2 mins). Stir in soda and cool slightly.
2. Stir in sugar, lightly beaten eggs, sifted flour and mix well.
3. Cover and microwave on high for 14 mins. Stand covered for 2 mins.
4.. Make the sauce by boiling together 1 cup cream, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp butter and 2 pinches of salt for about 3-4 mins.
5. Top each slice with a handful of toasted pecans and serve with salted caramel sauce and double cream or icecream.
Nb. Slabs of this are also great for school lunch boxes
