Bec’s Sticky Date Pudding

sticky-date-pudding1Well is it cold enough for this one yet?  I reckon so. 

This is a light textured sticky date that can be served anytime really.   I like to think that this time of year is meant for comfort food and we don’t have to feel guilty. 😉

I’ve written this recipe with minimal instruction. I’ve notice in bake club, some people (when there tired) go for the recipe’s that have the least amount of instruction.  I guess they think they’re easier.  Actually they can be more difficult.  To be able to write limited instructions you rely on people understanding simple baking techniques.  Not much to this one though, I’m sure you’ll get it right.  Let me know what you think.
