A moist not too sweet version of a figgy pudding but made with dates and minus the spices. You could try covering with buttered foil and steaming it for a even moister version. This can also be baked in a (28 ounce) can.
This dish is truly a taste of Louisiana Cajun Country. My mama made countless batches of biscuits and tomato gravy in her lifetime. I'm sure she learned to make this from her mother. This is the dish that puts my feet back under my mama's table. Serve with love over hot buttermilk biscuits along with bacon or sausage for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.
