- Coat an 8-inch round cake pan with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

- Cream margarine, sugar and eggs with an electric mixer until thick and creamy. Fold in flour and then date mixture. Pour into prepared pan and bake for about 45 minutes or until cooked through. Allow pudding to cool for 10 minutes and then remove from pan.
