Bec’s Sticky Date Pudding

I like to think that cold winter days (and nights) are meant for comfort food. You know, so that we don’t have to feel too guilty. 😉   However, this is a light textured sticky date pudding that can be served any time of the year.

I’ve written this recipe with minimal instruction. I’ve noticed in bake club, some people (when they’re tired) go for the recipe’s that have the least amount of instruction steps.  I guess they think they’re easier. Actually, they can be harder, because some recipes assume you know all the techniques.  For example, I’ve had people ask me, “Do you drain the dates before using in the recipe?” The answer is no.  The liquid is left in.

Classes if you are local (Melbourne) or Zooms from anywhere 🙂

To be able to write limited instructions you rely on people understanding these simple baking skills.  Not much to this one though, I’m sure you’ll get it right, and get to enjoy a great sticky date pudding.
