Sticky Date Pudding With Butterscotch Sauce

Been so long since the last time I posted here

My mum was in town for 1 week, time to chat and spend time with her, and of course eat and eat cos she always cooks most of the time when she's here - those yummy Indonesian cookings I seldom cook, those remind me of my childhood, my mom always loves to give her kids home cooking food
All food was too quick to disappear that I didn't have the chance to take a snap of them (read: was totally forgotten cos busy eating hehe...)

Not only her cookings not captured, the tidbits she brought was all gone in no time without being memorized in my camera.. I was too hipnotized that when I realized it, all was history :P
That's always the case in fact..can't resist the hunger of homegrown food while living abroad :)

Anyway, gotta post those I have experienced in the kitchen just before my mum came and some while she's here...

This cakey pudding was baked a day before she arrived

Adapted from Pecious Moments, this cake has texture of both cake and pudding, it's something like a very moist cake
I am not sure what went wrong, but from the picture, it looks like the texture is different from the source, mine is more cakey while hers is more to pudding
Or is it becoz hers is fully covered with the sauce while mine is not, I don't know
Anyhow, it stil tasted yummy, especially with butterscotch sauce poured on top - such a sinful indulgence :)

250g dates, pitted and chopped
1 tsp baking soda
80g butter
