Warm Sticky Toffee Pudding
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 45 min.
One of the best traditional British desserts!
I was entered into a baking contest last week. While I love to cook, I rarely bake. Saw this recipe and it looked delicious and straightforward. I got 2nd place (out of eight) with rave reviews so made it again for my fiancee’s family (Cdn) Thanksgiving dinner. We all loved it again. Made it to the letter, simple and quick and it was perfect. Thank you!
Sticky Toffee Pudding is a traditional British dessert that originated in the Lake District of England. It does not contain mincemeat or walnuts. This recipe is an American remake. Sticky toffee pudding contains chopped dates, butter and sugar, along with eggs, self-raising flour, and vanilla essence. The sauce is made of double cream, treacle and demerara sugar. Sticky toffee pudding is served with either custard or vanilla ice cream.
I was looking for something really different to serve for dessert on Thanksgiving, and this yummy pudding was the winner. It's moist and sweet, with a nice crunch from the walnuts, and the warm buttery sauce is a perfect complement. We all enjoyed it very much. One note: Although the recipe says it makes 9 servings, it's very rich and you can easily get 12 or more servings from it and still be satisfied.
