This is a delicious and super sweet sticky pudding. It's very important to finely chop the dates before soaking to obtain a smooth consistency. This recipe is for a 20 cm (8in) round tin.
A very simple microwave sponge pudding in less than 15 minutes with a texture between a sponge and a steamed pudding. Flavour it by adding raspberry jam, treacle or golden syrup to the bottom of the final bowl. Serve hot with custard.
