Pudding directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 °. Butter and flour 4-ounce ramekins.
  2. Bring dates and 1 1/4 cups water to a boil in a medium heavy saucepan with tall sides. Remove from heat; stir in baking soda (mixture will become foamy). Set aside to cool.
  3. Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.
  4. Using an electric mixer, beat 1/4 cup butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl to blend (mixture will be grainy). Add the eggs; beat to blend. Add flour mixture and date mixture; stir to blend. Repeat with remaining 1 egg, flour mixture, and date mixture. Pour batter into mold.
  5. Bake until a tester inserted into center of cakes comes out clean, 18-22 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Invert pudding onto rack. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and let stand at room temperature.

Sauce directions

  1. Bring sugar, cream, and butter to a boil in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue to boil, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Do not cook too long or mixture will get too stiff when cooled.
