Instructions

  1. Grease and line the interior basin of the slow cooker with butter and baking paper and set aside.
  2. Place the dates in a small saucepan along with ½ cup water and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until the dates have softened. Stir through the baking soda and set aside to cool.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, butter, and eggs. Add the cooled date mixture and whisk to combine. Fold through the flour and baking powder and then pour the batter into the prepared slow cooker.
  5. Place a layer of paper towel under the lid of the slow cooker to create a tight seal and to absorb any excess moisture. Turn the slow cooker on, press the up arrow to 02.8 (2 hours 48 minutes) then select the Low function. The decimal will flash to show the function has begun.
  6. Meanwhile, combine all the sauce ingredients into a medium-sized saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  7. Cook, stirring, for 10 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved and the sauce is smooth.
  8. Once the setting has completed, use a skewer to poke holes in the surface of the pudding and pour over half the sauce.
  9. Allow the pudding to sit for 5 minutes to absorb the sauce before serving with a drizzle of extra sauce and ice cream. Enjoy!
