Sticky Toffee Pudding Recipe
AMAZING! I made this for a big family get together. Doubled recipe, worked perfectly.

Dates, stoned and chopped


Bicarbonate of soda


Boiling water


Buttery baking spread*


Caster sugar


Medium eggs


Self-raising flour


Pure vanilla extract


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.
