Date Pudding

After the atrocity that was my last retro recipe, the Patio Salad, I needed something safe. One quick flip through my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook and this recipe for date pudding practically jumped off the page. I have really only had date pudding once before, a year and a half ago for my 30th birthday at King’s Highway in Palm Springs. It really was one of the most delicious deserts I have ever had.

How would I describe this delicious dessert? Ooey, gooey, sticky, and sweet deliciousness, made even better with freshly made whipped cream. That sums it up pretty good. Try this one when you need a good sugar kick!

Date Pudding

  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat together eggs and sugar. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to egg mixture, stir in dates and walnuts. Pour into a greased baking dish (8×8) and bake in a pan of hot water for one hour. Serve warm, topped with whipped cream. Serves 6.

    I’ve followed you on Pinterest for awhile but never noticed that you have a blog. Great! I’m looking forward to going through the archives. (The brownie pudding right next door is good, too.)
