1 tsp Baking soda
1/4 cup Granulated sugar
2 ea Eggs

This Australian recipe, a very moist cake, not what we'd call a pudding,
has taken Down Under by storm. you'll find it on restaurant and dinner
party menus across that country. This version was printed
recently by the New York times. TO PREPARE CAKE: Preheat oven to 350
degrees F. Butter a 9-inch round baking pan with sides at least
2 inches high, such as a springform pan. Place the dates in a saucepan
and cover with water (about 1-1/2 cups).
Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook for 3 minutes. Add the baking
soda (the mixture will foam) and set aside.
In a bowl, cream the cut up butter, sugar and eggs, adding the eggs one at
a time. Gently mix in the flour, salt and vanilla. Slowly stir in the
baking powder and 1/4 cup of the liquid from cooking the dates,
until the cake mixture resembles thick pancake batter. Drain off remainder
of date cooking liquid and discard. Stir in the dates.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until cooked in the center.
TO PREPARE CARAMEL SAUCE: Combine the butter, whipping cream, brown sugar
and vanilla. Bring to a boil; reduce to simmer, and cook for 3 minutes.
TO SERVE: Drizzle some of the sauce over the cake as it is cooling.
Serve the rest of the sauce separately.

Notes: This is a fair facimile of what we know as Sticky Date Pudding - it
was in vogue some years ago we in OZ did eat it as a pudding after the
main course - or any time - it is so good that any excuse would do to
'pig out' on it.
