5. Poke about 15 holes in the top of the pud­ding, us­ing the end of a spoon or skewer. Pour over half the butterscotch sauce (re­serv­ing half to serve) and leave for about 1 minute to soak into the pud­ding slightly.

To serve, cut sticky date pud­ding into squares and serve on plates or in bowls, pour­ing over ex­tra butterscotch sauce (if de­sired). Serve ice­cream on the side, or driz­zle over runny cream (if us­ing).
