Instructions for Pudding:

  1. In a mug, place the chopped dates and water.
  2. Place in microwave for 50 sec until the dates are softened.
  3. Add the Bicarb soda to the mug and let it sit for a minute and mash roughly with a fork.
  4. Add the butter into the mug and place again in the microwave for 10-15 sec to soften and melt.
  5. Add the sugar, flour and egg to the mug and mix to combine thoroughly with a spoon.
  6. Flatten the top of the mixture and sprinkle the walnuts on top.
  7. Place in the microwave on a saucer for 1 minute. It may need a further 10-20 sec to finish it off completely, depending on your microwave.
