Ingredients
  • 100g chopped dates
  • 75ml vegetable oil, plus extra for greasing
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 100g demerara sugar
  • 2tsp vanilla extract
  • 40g dark brown sugar
  • 1tbsp golden syrup
  • 150ml Asda 50% Less Fat Crème Fraîche

Method
  • Put the dates in a mixing bowl and add 100ml boiling water. Soak for 20 mins, then mash with a fork.

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease a 20cm x 15cm baking dish with a little oil.

  • In a separate bowl, beat together the oil, eggs, flour, bicarb, demerara sugar and 1tsp of the vanilla extract.

  • Stir the mashed dates into the pudding mixture until just combined. Pour into the baking dish and bake for 30-35 mins or until the centre springs back when lightly pressed.

  • For the toffee sauce, heat the remaining vanilla, dark brown sugar and syrup in a pan on low, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a simmer.

  • Take the pan off the heat, then stir in the crème fraîche until smooth.

  • Pour the toffee sauce over the pudding. Serve with the custard.
