looking for a wonderful old fashioned moist recipe for my sister's birthday and thanks in advance...birthday 10/30.
This is called Date Pudding - I know it is a variation of a very old recipe [desserts used to be called pudding]. I have used this recipe for 40 years. I normally bake it in a greased 8 x 8 square pan.
1 cup chopped dates
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
A pinch of salt
Pour the boiling water over the dates and soda. Let stand till it is just warm. Mash your dates , then put in your other ingredients except the nuts. Stir together and then stir in the dates. Bake 25 minutes in 375 degree oven. Serve with whipped cream.
sounds yummy and thanks!
