Marci

Dates, stoned and chopped

125g

Bicarbonate of soda

1tsp

Boiling water

225ml

Buttery baking spread*

40g

Caster sugar

125g

Medium eggs

2

Self-raising flour

125g

Pure vanilla extract

1tsp

You will also need…

An 18cm (7”) square cake tin base-lined with baking parchment.


*Recipe is based on 70% fat buttery baking spread.

Step 1 of 5

Preheat the oven to 180°C, (160°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 4.

Step 2 of 5

Mix the dates and the bicarbonate of soda. Pour the hot water over and leave to soak while you make the batter. Whisk together the buttery baking spread and the sugar, then add eggs, one at a time (don’t worry if it curdles). Mix in the flour, and then stir in the date mixture and vanilla. Pour into the prepared tin.

Step 3 of 5

Bake in the oven for about 50 minutes, until springy to the touch and cooked through.

Step 4 of 5

To make the sauce: Spoon the caramel into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 1-2 minutes, stirring often (or heat gently on the hob)

Step 5 of 5

Serve the pudding warm with a scoop of ice cream or alternatively, heat up some custard and pour over. Add extra caramel sauce for added indulgence.

If you don't have enough time to make our Sticky Toffee Pudding on the day you want it, don't worry! You can make this dessert the day before and then keep it covered in the fridge. Then, once you're ready, simply re-heat it in the oven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST recipe for my favourite pud! This is by far the best receipt for sticky toffee pud. I often make it for our community lunch at church as it is a firm favourite with everyone!! I always serve with some pouring warm carnation caramel sauce. Just so good!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tasted fantastic Recipe a little hard to follow once it gets to step 4. Do you heat the sauce, pour it on and then bake again, or take the sticky tofffee pudding out of the oven, drizzle on the pre heated caramel and then serve straight away? I did the second method and it tasted great. Hope this was the correct way???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I made this for a big family get together. Doubled recipe, worked perfectly. I always give them the choice of cram or Caramel Sauce. So they have both usually. Its such a favourite and much quicker than my old way of doing it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Winter pud! Snowing today searching through cupboard for something for pud after Sunday lunch and found tin of caramel and dates. Sticky toffee pudding recipe was found on this site and a delightful pudding was made. Went down well with all the family.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Confused I am reviewing the recipe for sticky toffee pudding. The star isn't because I've tried to make the pudding it is because I've tried to understand the recipe. The recipe is confusing. First you bake a pudding in the oven. Then all of a sudden , having reached for THE tin of condensed milk you have a lovely caramel sauce without any explanation. Then what happens to the sauce? Apparently you bake the pudding again and then forget about the toffee sauce and serve it up with custard or ice cream. Too confusing. I would have expected better from a traditional own brand recipe collection.
