Boil the kettle. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Roughly chop the dried diced dates. Pour the boiling water (see ingredients list) into a large bowl, then add the dates. Stir and set aside until lukewarm, 10 minutes.

TIP: Reserve the water to use in step 2!


While the dates are soaking, melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add the sponge mix, melted butter and eggs to the bowl with the dates and water and mix until well combined.


Generously grease a 15x20cm baking dish on all surfaces and pour in the sticky date mixture. Bake, until just firm to the touch, 35-40 minutes. When the pudding has 5 minutes cook time remaining, return the saucepan to a medium heat. Add the caramel sauce and cook, whisking regularly, until it starts to bubble, 4-5 minutes. Poke holes into the top of the pudding and pour over the caramel sauce.

TIP: To check if the pudding is done, stick a toothpick or skewer in the centre. It should come out clean.


Divide the sticky date pudding between bowls and top with the longlife cream (see ingredients list).
