Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the hot water. Stir in 1 tablespoon of sugar and the treacle, then mix in the cranberries and flour. Pour into a greased 1.5 litre pudding mould.
Cover the mould, and place into a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover the steaming pot. Cook over medium heat for one hour before checking, but it will take about 1 1/2 hours total. A skewer inserted into the pudding should come out clean. Loosen the edges, and cool on a wire rack in the mould.
Make the hard sauce just before serving: Heat the unsalted butter, cream, 200g sugar and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook stirring constantly until heated through and smooth.
