add sugar, salt and vanilla essence. Stir until combined then gently fold through flour and baking powder, until just combined.
3. Transfer mixture into prepared dish and bake for about 45 minutes, until golden and skewer comes out clean. Set aside for about 5 minutes.
4. When the pudding has 5 minutes’ cook time remaining, prepare the butterscotch sauce. Combine all butterscotch sauce ingredients in a small pot on medium heat. Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer, then reduce heat to low to cook for a further 3-4 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved and sauce has thickened slightly.
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).
