The Whole Scoop

I had forgotten about this recipe until someone on social media asked for one! Sticky Date Puddings has been in my repertoire for so long, I cannot believe I didn't have it on here till now. As the cooler months approach, of course this is perfect for a cold night in. Comforting, warming and decadently sweet, this iconic Aussie treat should be on your to do list! I prefer them steamed as they are then definitely stickier than if they are baked. But seriously, up to you! Which ever way you end up going you will love this recipe.

Of course we had to add it to ice cream, as a flavour! Strictly in the name of education. Sticky Date Caramel Ice Cream...head over here and weep. The Whole Scoop is real people. You need it!
