Sticky Date Pudding in a mug

A deliciously fast Sticky Date Pudding.

10 x dates, roughly chopped
1 1/2 Tbls boiling water
1/8 tspn bicarb soda
1 1/2 Tbls butter
1 1/2 Tbls brown sugar
1 1/2 Tbls self - raising flour
1/2 x egg beaten
1/2 Tbls walnuts, roughly chopped

For the caramel sauce
1 Tbls butter
1 tspn milk or cream
4 Tbls browns sugar

Preparation method
This recipe is to make 1 mug serving. I would recommend making two though so you don’t have to halve an egg*

In a mug place the chopped dates and water. Place in microwave for 50 sec until the dates are softened.

Add the Bicarb soda to the mug and let it sit for a minute and mash roughly with a fork.

Add the butter into the mug and place again in the microwave for 10-15 sec to soften and melt.

Add the sugar, flour and egg to the mug and mix to combine thoroughly with a spoon. Flatten the top of the mixture and sprinkle the walnuts on top.

Place in the microwave on a saucer for 1 minute. It may need a further 10-20 sec to finish it off completely, depending on your microwave.

Basic Caramel Sauce:
In an ovenproof ramekin add the extra sugar, butter and milk/cream and place in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Remove and stir and repeat another two to three times depending on your microwave. You will end up with a dark caramel sauce. Drizzle over the sticky date cups and enjoy!
