      • Preheat the oven to 180C/375F.
      • Place the dates and water into a small saucepan and bring to a slow boil over a medium heat.
      • Once boiling, immediately remove from the heat and add the bicarb and stir through. Allow the date mixture to cool for at least 10 minutes before using.
      • Using a kitchen stand mixer with a whisk attachment fitted, whisk the eggs until fluffy (approximately 5 minutes). Add the maple syrup and vanilla and whisk for a further 3 minutes.
      • Add the mashed Banana and whisk in until combined.
      • Sift the dry ingredients over the egg mixture and stir through/whisk on low.
      • Stir through the date mixture (do not over mix).
      • Pour the mixture into a 20cm (or there about) Pie dish or a 18-20cm round greased cake tin. Cook for 35-40 minutes (this may vary a few minutes if using a larger or smaller pie/cake tin.
      • Serve warm with Caramel Sauce and dollops of cream or custard

      Caramel Sauce

      • Place the coconut cream and maple syrup in a saucepan over medium/high heat. Bring the mixture to boil, then reduce to a medium heat.
      • Allow the mixture to simmer until quite thick and dark golden in colour. Stir regularly to prevent burning. This will take 10-20 minutes, depending on the quality of your coconut cream.
      • Add the vanilla and salt and continue to cook on medium heat for another 3 minutes.
      • The caramel will be dark golden in colour and delicious. Use immediately or, when cooler, place into container and keep in fridge. The caramel will thicken as it refridgerates.
