The instruction how to make Sticky date banana pudding
- Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Grease a 1.75L (7 cup) ovenproof dish.
- Place the dates and 125ml (1 u20442 cup) water in a saucepan and stir to combine. Bring to the boil over medium heat. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the bicarb and set aside to cool.
- Use electric beaters to beat the butter and caster sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla and mashed banana. Sift the flour over the batter and add the softened date mixture. Gently fold until combined.
- Spoon the mixture into the prepared dish and smooth the surface. Arrange the extra banana, cut side up, on top of the batter, pressing in gently. Bake the pudding for 45-60 minutes or until the centre is firm to a gentle touch.
- Meanwhile, for the caramel sauce, place the butter, brown sugar and cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Serve the pudding warm, drizzled with the caramel sauce. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
