This is a basic sticky date pudding that is easy to make. I like to serve it with ice cream but it is great on its own.

  2. In a medium saucepan bring the water and dates to the boil. Mix in the bicarb soda then let cool.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift in the flour. Add the date mixture and the vanilla essence, then mix well with an electric hand mixer. Pour into a large rectangular ceramic baking dish, bake in the oven for approximately 40 minutes.
