Well chaps, if you’ve seen Rachel’s blog posting you’ll already know that D is for dates.
I’ve had my dates for about 3weeks but time hasn’t really been on my side so I only got round to cooking with them this weekend.
I’d already decided what to make though and luckily, even though Rachel cooked about a dozen datey delights, I came up with something different.
I made a sticky toffee pudding using Nigella Lawson’s Easy Sticky Toffee Pudding recipe. I had made it before and she also has a brilliant self saucing chocolate pudding recipe and hey! Who doesn’t like a nice gooey pudding?
The messiest bit was the chopping of the dates. I have to say that even though I dusted my date pieces with flour before mixing them in the batter, they all sank to the bottom so we had a gooey pudding with a chewy datey layer but Simon and I both agreed that it tasted good which to be honest is what it’s all about.
Here’s the finished article……
And finally, before is go away and think of eggy things for the next post, here’s the recipe in case you want to give it a try.
Mmmmm, wonder if Simons left me any? I’m quite peckish now.
