This is a good old English pudding which is made all over the country. I think this recipe originated with Francis Coulson of Sharrow Bay in Ullswater, and it works better than any of the other recipes I have tried. The best dates to use are Medjool, which come from India; they are plump and meaty, with almost a treacle taste.


  • 175 g (6 oz) dates, stoned and chopped
  • 300 ml (10


Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4 and grease a 28 × 18 cm (11 × 7 in) baking tin.
