Toffee sauce


1.Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease an 8-hole (½-cup/125ml) mini fluted tube pan.
2.Using scissors, coarsely cut dates into a medium saucepan; add the water. Bring to the boil; remove from heat, stir in soda. Cool.
3.Beat butter, eggs, sugar and extract in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in sifted flour and date mixture. Divide mixture into pan holes. Bake about 15 minutes.
4.Meanwhile, make toffee sauce: Cook sugar in a medium frying pan, over medium heat, without stirring, until sugar melts and turns a dark caramel colour. Gently add cream (be careful, as it will splatter); stir to combine. Simmer, uncovered, for 1 minute or until sauce thickens slightly.
5.Serve warm puddings with toffee sauce and a little extra pouring cream, if you like.
