Date and Walnut Pudding

Preparation Method: 

Remove the seeds from dates and chop them. Soak in 5 tbsps of water with ½ tsp of soda for 4-5 hours or overnight. Sift maida with baking powder. Add dates and walnuts to the maida and mix well. Beat condensed milk and butter well, in a clean pan. Add the maida mixture to the condensed milk mixture, add the essence and beat well. Bake in a preheated oven at 150º C for 50 minutes. Keep aside.

 Prepare custard sauce by dissolving custard powder in ½ cup milk. Heat the remaining 2 cups of milk with sugar. When it boils, add the custard powder, stirring continuously.
