Preheat oven for 10 minutes at 180°C (160°C fan-forced oven). Grease a 20cm round cake pan with cooking spray. Line the base with baking paper.

Combine dates and water in a small saucepan and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until dates are soft and pulpy. Cool.

Beat Cake Mix, milk, butter and eggs in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on LOW speed for 30 seconds, then on MEDIUM for 2 minutes. Stir in date mixture and mix until combined. Pour into pan and gently smooth top.

Bake for 50-55 minutes until top springs back when lightly touched in the centre or skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes; gently remove cake from pan and remove paper.

Make caramel sauce by combining all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, until sauce comes to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 2 minutes. Pierce pudding all over with a skewer. Pour 1/2 cup of warm sauce over warm pudding. Stand for 10 minutes. Cut into wedges. Serve with remaining sauce and ice-cream.
