    Sounds great. Excellent, easy to follow directions. For some reason, maybe the dates, this reminds me of a great Christmas time dessert.

    Saw a comment from "lunasea" via my page and can't wait to try this. Born in England myself so I'll see what my parents think of this one. I can't wait to try it for them. Thanks so much for the recipe.

    This is such an elegant desert. The British call these sticky, dense, cake-like deserts "puddings", even though the consistency is not that of a pudding. There are many different types of these "puddings", but this one looks especially wonderful. Will definitely make this!
    Okay Mini, put that hand up for me girl... time for a HIGH 5! :D
