The instruction how to make Fig and date pudding with butterscotch sauce

  1. Preheat oven to 160u00b0C. Line the base and side of a 20cm round cake pan with baking paper.
  2. Combine the dates, figs, boiling water, bicarbonate of soda and tea bags in a medium heatproof bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes to soak. Remove and discard tea bags.
  3. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugar together until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until just combined. Stir in flour and date mixture, in batches, alternating between each batch. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove from oven and set aside for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack.
  4. Meanwhile, to make the butterscotch sauce, combine the butter, sugar and cream in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until butter melts, sugar dissolves and sauce thickens slightly.
  5. Serve the pudding warm or at room temperature with hot butterscotch sauce.
