The chocolate in this pudding makes it amazing! It just adds something to the pudding, especially when using dark chocolate, it is very rich but not too sweet which is what I find happens without the chocolate
ohh man thts amazing..it looks sinfully yumm!!.......i tried making an indian style date pudding on my blog its www.myfoodinn.blogpsot.com ....obviously i m not as good as u :)
Yum! - Next time I will not be using a sping form pan as it leaked everywhere.
this is way too rich, would definately not put the chocolate in and dont put the sauce in the bottom of the pan.
WHAT IS WRONG PEOPLE... the chocolate is the best bit, and i am all for tradition but when its warm try it! Try it again making it with the chocolate chips in the mix.. the best thing ever, you just get tiny bursts of chocolately goodness! Also the strawberries I agree would probably have them fresh with this dish as it is quite rich, but do try making them as they are rather nice as well! All the best, happy baking! Wayne! :)
Forgot to say, make sure you use the chocolate as it makes the difference. I usually do not use chocolate in sticky date pudding, but the chocolate blows it away!!!
I have to agree with Eric11 make sure you use the chocolate, this is what makes it stand out from the rest. This is the only recipe I will use from now on.
We have a small restaurant attached to our motel and offer our guests fantastic food. This recipe is no doubt the BEST. I made two large loaf pans, and not only did our guests rave about it but so did Eric who is a sticky date pudding nut. It is truly decadent. I substituted the chocolate buttons for rich dark Belgium chocolate.
yeah, but that's not a reason why... why?
... don't make it
Topchef... why dont make it ????
melimpah dan tak payah rebus date.
made your sticky date for a lunchin with friends , they were all blown away, i did not put in the choc ,and i cant have wheat so i reduced the amount of water by 100mls and added a little extra wheat free flour but the end result was just beautiful , one friend always thought that wheat free ment it would tast odd but said it was the best he had eaten ,thanks , virginia
I just made it tonight, as a practice run for a weekend away with friends in a couple of weeks. I was sceptical about the recipe feeding a large group, but having tasted it, a small piece would be fine and the recipe will probably feed all 18 of us.
It puffed up nicely, but the sauce went over the edge of the casserole dish (I knew I should have put it on a tray!) so I'll use a bigger dish next time - probably a lasagne dish so I can cut it in squares.
Very yummy and very rich. I didn't put the chocolate in either. Next time I might add some ground ginger to cut through the sweetness a bit.
Make sure you use a large saucepan for the sauce, because it does boil over if you're not careful.
i have a similar recipe to this which adds the butterscotch sauce after baking, but this one is great cause it comes out all moist. this is one of my top ten fav desserts and ii have to agree the strawberries and chocolate make its all sound a bit rich for one dish. all in all the fam loved it and i have made it 3 times in the past month for all our guests. thanks..
rebekah, yes u add the water aswell, its the last thing u add, except this recipe adds chocolate, also when adding the eggs, add one at a time and mix through b4 adding other
Do you add the water that the dates have been soaking to the mixture or do you throw the water out?
Thanks - great recipe! made enough for 16 people though which is bit lethal when making for 6 - so much left. As above missed out the choc and didnt bother with the strawberries. Yummy with cream.
pretty good, i didnt use the butterscotch sauce to cook with, instead tried about 3 tablespoons of golden syrup and 3 tablespoons of blacktreacle. ive used it before in other stickydate puddings, comes out a treat, also no chocolate
this was a fantastic recipe. i made it for christmas and like the person above, it looked like it was baked by someone else. i've tried numerous recipes before, but i'll be sticking to this one :)
I made this for boxing day, and it was really REALLY good. Not anywhere near as complicated as it looks.
I omitted the chocolate chips, and didn't do the strawberries either. The only thing I can say is that it makes a large pudding! You need a big dish - at least 2.5 litre I'd say.
The pudding served way more than 12 people also. It can easily serve 18 I reckon.
fangfluffy, In the recipe he asked to use springform tin, my question is to you all, can't we use normal cake tin for this & how big tin we need for this recipe? you have give in by litter but I'm new to this so please could any one tell me in inches or c meters? I have taste S Date pudding when my friend made it once now I'm big fan & want to try this. So.......
I make sticky date pudding every xmas, last year i tried this receipe and it was awsome. It rose up to about 150mm, looked like store bought and tasted amazing, everyone loved it. I left out the chocolate, and didnt bother poaching strawberries - i served it with whipped cream and fresh strawberries to cut the richness. Definately making this one again, everyone wanted the receipe - but i wouldn't tell them, lol
