Sticky Toffee Pudding with Dates

I used the same recipe again. I don't usually make things twice so quickly, but I was short on time and  needed something that could be served immediately. And making this is so easy and quick, and it was a dessert we could serve warm with tea. I didn't take time for photos - I snapped a few pictures before the last pieces were scooped off the pan.

Since it tasted like an arabic dessert, I added 3/4 cup pitted medjool dates this time. It came out great! I also reduced the brown sugar in the sauce to 3/4 cup, and made sure it came to a full boil (read that from another recipe). I also added 1/4 cup maple syrup. I don't think it changed the texture too much, but it did taste better.

Most importantly, I gradually beat in the flour. Last time I incorporated the flour into the batter in probably about 4 portions, beating it quickly. I'm sensitive to that raw flour taste so maybe that's why it came out better. I took more time to beat in the flour in about 8 smaller portions.
