Looks good and easy to do

This pudding is delicious, if you forced me to describe it in just one word. Here are some other descriptions: tasty, yummy, easy, scrumdiddlyumptious, etc. As dates are hard to slice, I food processed them with the baking soda and water, and it still works out completely fine. Now, if you're still not persuaded to make it for yourself, here's something else about it being easy to prepare... I made it with no help whatsoever and I'm nine years old!

Yummy ! Can this be frozen ?
CHELSEA: Thanks for your feedback. Not sure if they can be frozen. Give it a try and let us know. Enjoy!

Hi Chelsea, I made this last night ans it was yummy but why have the dates all gone to the bottom of the dish. What am i doing wrong. Cheers.
CHELSEA: coat the dates in a little flour to stop them sinking to the bottom. Cheers!

Really nice and very easy to make, a big hit with the family. I will definitely be making this again.

The only recipe I use. Absolutely delicious.

This is restaurant quality, my wife said it was the best desert I had ever made, the kids and I agree. I did half the quantities for the sauce, it was enough for all the pudding.
