Sticky Toffee Pudding


A British classic. Both tasty and highly calorific!


Serve with custard, ice cream or creme fraiche.


Cake mix



  1. Heat oven to 190C / Gas Mark 5.
  2. Butter a 2.5l flat pudding dish - a baking tray will do at a pinch.
  3. Beat the eggs, butter and vanilla into the milk, then stir into the premixed flour and sugar, then fold in the dates.
  4. Spread the mix into the baking dish.
  5. Sprinkle over the remaining sugar, and put some small nobs of the butter on top.
  6. Pour the boiling water over the top - trust me.
  7. Cook for 45-55 mins until the top is cooked, with the sticky sauce underneath.
