In a 1 ½-cup (375 ml) mug, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and butter with a fork until the butter forms pea-sized pieces. Add the milk and stir until smooth.
In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, water and chopped date. Spoon the mixture over the pudding batter.
Place the mug on a plate in case it overflows as it cooks. Cook in the microwave oven for 1 minute. Depending on the microwave, continue to cook for 15 to 20 seconds or until the middle of the cake is cooked. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
