  Oh my!!! sticky date pudding!!! I have fallen in love...  ...with sticky date pudding with brown butter toffee sauce!

I have never liked dates since young. 
Those days (some 30-40 odd years ago), we would have dates once a year, during Ramadan. 
I have never liked them , as they were too overly sweet, dates were coated with syrup and dry.
I  didn't pay much attention to its country of origin :(
Much much later, years later.... traders started to bring in dates from Tunisia. Tunisian dates were much better  in quality, naturally sweet, moist and soft in texture. From then on, I craved for Tunisian dates every Ramadan. 
And in Perth, there is another type of dates on sale here all year round, its called Mejdool from sunny California, US. And these dates aren't cheap either :(. 
Due its ridiculous store pricing, I 'refused' to spend that much money on dates. ...but then, during the month of Ramadan, grocery stores will hold a special sale at halved their normal retail price. And when that happened, I'd buy the whole 2 1/2 kg  box home :D
I have been wanting to bake sticky date pudding for quite sometime, hesitated, as I can imagine how sweet it will turn out to be.
I have sweet tooth and I love... love all kind of sweet dessert.... but I can't take anything that is overly sweet... just a tad sweet that is all :D
I have tasted the store-bought sticky date pudding and it was .... :(


To cut long story short...

I plucked my courage and chose to go with Ms Donna Hay for my first sticky date pudding bake. Her recipe is easy to follow :D

 Sticky date pudding turned out was a hit with everyone :D
...and I am drooling and craving for another round of sticky date puddings as my fingers hitting the keyboards ;P
