How to make a St. Patrick's Day Guinness Pudding

What you'll need
  • 150g dates, de-stoned
  • 100ml water
  • 100ml Guinness (or any other Irish stout, of course)
  • 2 Heritage eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 75g Heritage butter
  • 180g sugar
  • 180g self raising flour
  • 90g cream
  • 90g butter
  • 90g brown sugar
  • A little blackcurrant liqueur (optional)
  • A little Guinness (or other Irish stout)
Cooking directions

This incredible creation will suit everyone down to the ground for St. Patrick’s Day - the ultimate treat those with a slightly boozy sweet tooth.

Preheat your oven to 200C.
Place the water into a pan along with the dates, Guinness and bicarbonate of soda.
Bring this to the boil, then simmer for 15 minutes (or until the dates have broken down).
Put the butter & sugar into a bowl and mix together
Add the eggs and beat them together further. Add the flour and vanilla extract.
Grease a 30x20cm baking tin.
Fold the mixture and place in the oven

Fold the date mixture into the flour and egg mixture until well combined; then move this into the greased tin. Place in the oven for 40 minutes - the mixture should be risen and thoroughly cooked.

Time to make the sauce

Bring butter, cream, sugar, and splash of Guinness to the boil in a pan. Place the blackcurrant liqueur in, mix together.

Serve

To serve, cut the bake into slices and drizzle over the sauce. There we have it - an irresistible slice of goodness to enjoy this St. Patrick’s Day. Perfectly accompanied by a good ol’ dollop of vanilla ice-cream or double cream.
