The recipe I am going to share with you today is about 350 years old! A great favourite from the Cape where the first brandy from Cape grapes were distilled in 1672! We have come a very long way since then when it comes to the quality of our brandy, but still, Cape Brandy Pudding remains an old time favourite Growing up in South Africa is great fun with all the recipes your mother makes and teaches you during your younger years!
250 g of dates (remove the pits), cut up
