That’s precisely what our Sticky Toffee Pudding promises—a decadent delight that combines the sweetness of dates with the richness of toffee sauce, creating a dessert that’s nothing short of heavenly.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • For the toffee sauce: 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup unsalted butter, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the chopped dates and baking soda. Pour boiling water over the dates and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
  4. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add this dry mixture to the butter mixture and mix well. Fold in the date mixture.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. While the pudding is baking, prepare the toffee sauce. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the heavy cream, butter, brown sugar, and salt. Stir continuously until the sauce thickens, about 5-7 minutes.
  7. Once the pudding is out of the oven, poke holes in it with a fork and pour half of the hot toffee sauce over the top. Let it soak for 10 minutes.
  8. Serve the pudding warm, drizzled with the remaining toffee sauce. Enjoy this heavenly dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
