“Your face makes my soul want to eat chocolate pudding!” - Andy Milonakis

We have been having some cooler weather in Melbourne the last few days, with some rain, making it resemble Autumn. As we had muffins left over from a couple of days ago, we used them to make this dessert last night, as the temperatures fell…

Cheaters’ Sticky Date Puddings
Ingredients, for the puddings
4 large sultana muffins, crumbled
50g chopped dates
40g butter
Butter, for greasing
For the sauce
70g brown sugar
60g butter
100 mL double cream
1 tbsp brandy
vanilla ice cream, to serve

Heat oven to 180˚C.
Mix the crumbled muffins with the melted butter and chopped dates.
Divide between 4 buttered ramekins (or one baking dish).
Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes until warmed through.
Meanwhile, place the sugar, butter, brandy and cream in a small pan and gently heat together, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
Pour the sauce over the muffin mixture and serve warm with ice cream.
