Food Heaven magazine’s Sticky Toffee Pudding

Posted 13 June 2017   |   601 views   |   Family & Home   |   Comments (0) A delicious classic enjoyed all year round, we think this Sticky Toffee Pudding is just the thing to put a smile on Dad's face this Father's Day...

Serves 4

For the pudding

·         175g (6oz) pitted dates

·         300ml (10fl oz) water

·         1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

·         50g (1¾oz) unsalted butter, softened

·         175g (6oz) caster sugar

·         2 large free-range eggs, beaten

·         175g (6oz) self-raising flour

For the sauce

·         350ml (12fl oz) double cream

·         50g (1¾oz) soft dark brown sugar

·         1 tbsp black treacle

·         50g (1¾oz) good-quality plain chocolate 


1.      Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. Grease a terrine or similar mould, about 26x10cm (10x4in), or four individual moulds (about 300ml (10fl oz) capacity).

2.      Put the dates and water into a saucepan, bring to a simmer over a medium heat and cook for 10 minutes. Add the bicarbonate of soda and remove from the heat. Allow to cool.

3.      Using an electric hand whisk or stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Slowly whisk in the eggs until fully incorporated, then add the cooled dates with their liquid and fold in. Finally, fold in the flour, using a spatula or large metal spoon.

4.      Spoon the mixture into the prepared terrine or individual moulds and spread evenly. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or 15 minutes for individual puddings.

5.      Meanwhile, to make the sauce, put the cream, brown sugar and treacle into a pan and stir over a medium heat until the mixture comes to the boil. Remove from the heat and whisk in the chocolate until it is fully melted. Keep warm.

6.      Carefully turn out the pudding(s) and cut into slices (if you’ve baked the pudding in a terrine). Serve with the hot sauce and pouring cream.
