Sticky Date Pudding

Winter months call for some dessert filled with energy. Since dates are available in abundance during the winter months, the idea of sticky date pudding came to our mind. Meena has some good recipes in collection but we found this one by Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor yummy and perfect!
Dates - 1 cup pitted and chopped
Bicarbonate of soda - 1/2 teaspoon
Boiling water - 1 cup
Butter - 90g, softened
Brown sugar - 1/2 cup
Vanilla extract -  1 teaspoon
Eggs - 2
Refined flour - 1 cup sifted
Powdered sugar - QS

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base of a 7cm deep rectangular cake pan.
Place dates and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl. Pour over boiling water. Allow to stand for 20 minutes.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy.
Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
Using a large metal spoon, fold through date mixture and flour until well combined.
Spoon mixture into prepared cake pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Turn onto a plate.

Cut into 3/4 inch slices, sprinkle powdered sugar on both the sides and serve with tea, coffee or juice.
