If cooking using Steam Combination, preheat  the oven to Hot Air + Steam ( 50%) 160C
If choosing to steam you will set the oven to 100c Steam

Make the puddings.
Chop dates and place in bowl with baking soda, and add  boiling water.
Add butter and stir till melted. Add sugar and stir till combined.

Pour the mixture into 4 greased ramekins.
Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes if using Steam combi, or 35 minutes if steaming, or until risen and puddings spring back when pressed.
If you choose to use steam only place a sheet of baking paper on a rack above the puddings to avoid condensation dripping onto the puddings.
