Pudding

  • 1 cup (140g) dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 80g unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (220g) brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 extra-large free-range eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 ¼ cups (300g) mashed Spud Lite potato

METHOD

 

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Lightly grease a 23cm round spring-form tin and line with baking paper.
  1. For the pudding, combine dates, bicarbonate soda and boiling water together in a small bowl. Cover and leave to stand for 15 minutes.
  1. Meanwhile, beat butter, sugar, mixed spice and cinnamon until pale and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition. Add potato, beating until combined. Add flour and date mixture, stirring until well combined.
  1. Pour mixture into prepared cake tin, smoothing the top with a spatula. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour or until a skewer comes out of the centre clean. Remove from oven and allow pudding to cool for 5 minutes. 
  1. Meanwhile, for the salted caramel sauce, combine the sugar, cream, vanilla, butter and salt together in a small saucepan over a medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and cook for 5 minutes

To serve, place pudding on serving plate and drizzle over half the salted caramel sauce.  Serve pudding with remaining sauce and thick cream.
