Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and, using an electric whisk, beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then fold in the four and vanilla. Beat in the date mixture and golden syrup and spoon into the moulds. Bake for 30mins, then leave in the tins to cool for 10mins before de-moulding onto the plates.
When the puddings are out of the oven make the sauce: Put the butter, sugar, salt and cream in a pan over a medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Leave for 5-10mins to thicken.
Turn out the puddings and spoon over sauce with cream or crème fraîche.
