  3. Now add your eggs a bit at a time into your butter mix until they are completely combined
  4. Now get your flour and fold this into your mix until all combined
  5. By now your dates should be softened so you can drain any left over water and then add your dates to your batter and mix
  6. You can now also add your milk and mix again as this will help to loosen your batter, then add to your dish and bake for approximately 30 mins until a knife comes out clean
  7. Whiles your sticky toffee pudding is cooking you can make your sauce
  8. So take your butter, sugar and half of your double cream (112ml) and melt on a medium heat until your sugar has dissolved, this will take approximately 5 mins then turn the heat up and let it boil for a few minutes then take it off the heat and stir in the last of your cream, then it’s done!
