  • 125g butter, chopped
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

Butterscotch sauce:

  • Combine dates and 1 1/4 cups cold water in a saucepan. Bring to the boil over a medium heat
  • Remove from heat. Stir in bicarbonate of soda
  • Stand for 15 minutes
  • Process date mixture until almost smooth
  • Place butter and sugar in a bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat for 5 minutes or until light and fluffy
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time
  • Stir in flour, chocolate and date mixture
  • Spread mixture into prepared pan
  • Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean
