Good afternoon everyone ~ Some of you asked for the Sticky Date Pudding recipe so here it is.

Sticky Date Pudding

1/2 tsp salt

Pour boiling water over pitted dates and bk soda, in a small bowl. Mix and let stand until lukewarm.

Cream butter and sugar in a medium-sized bowl until light and creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine flour, bk powder, and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with date mixture, making 3 dry and 2 liquid additions. Mix well.

Spread evenly in a 9 inch square greased pan. Bake 40-45 mins. at 350.

Toffee Sauce
