Yield: Yields about 1-1/3 cups sauce.
Baking soda (known as bicarb to Brits) plays two roles in this recipe: It helps soften the dates, and it helps the wet, heavy batter rise during baking. If you can only find golden sugar in regular granulation, just blend it in a food processor for 1 or 2 minutes to get a superfine texture.

Very simple but elegant dessert. I used a 9 inch round cake pan with 1 & 1/2 inch sides and it fit perfectly . Mine was done after 30 minutes . I didn't have self rising flour so I used all purpose and added 1 teaspoon of baking powder . Served with vanilla ice cream which does enhance the dish because the sauce hardens on the ice cream . Mmmm!
Followed recipe exactly. Turned out very well. I poured some of the sauce onto the cake to soak in a little. Will definitely make it again.
