  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C, gas 5. 
  • Place the softened butter and sugar together beat for 3 minutes or until creamy, no need to go mad.
  • Next add the egg with 2 tbsp flour and just bring together
  • Next add the rest of the flour, baking powder and salt, do not over beat.
  • Pour the boiling water over chopped dates and sultanas and add the vanilla.
  • Pour into the creamed butter and mix well but do not over mix.
  • Pour into a well buttered 24cm 5cm deep baking dish or tray.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until well risen and cooked.

For the sauce:

  • Meanwhile place the butter, salt, sugar, treacle and cream into a saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer, then cook for a couple of minutes, to make sure the sugar has dissolved.
  • Once dissolved remove the pan from the stove and mix in the vanilla and lemon juice.
  • Serve warm in neat squares in small bowls, the sauce should come halfway up the pudding.
  • Top with vanilla ice cream (Cart d’Or) and thick cream.
