Introduction Sticky toffee pudding
It is a traditional dessert endeavoured in England, which composes of a moist cake and toffee source. As the name implies, the Sticky Toffee pudding is pretty sticky and it means that the pudding is sticky to the touch.
If you are in love with sweets and confectionaries then this is the ideal British dessert for you.
The history of this is even more fascinating because there are three Whopping theories about its origin! Imagine how much the people are in love with it.
All the theories run back in time at least a hundred years or close.
The first one is pretty intense because it is said to be first found by Francis Coulson, the owner of a hotel in the early nineties. They even say that the owner made the hotel staff sign agreements stating that they will not share the secret recipe with anyone at any time.
The second says that the pudding was first made in Scotland, because there is the saying that Scots are the lovers of sugar!
The third says that it was invented in 1907 in Yorkshire.
However, if you are visiting England you can try out them from the legendary hotels, though they are not sure on where the origin was. Many bakeries and sweet shops make this very popular taste teaser as people just love it.
Well if you were to ask me, I would say that puddings never got any better than this!

- Cream if you would like
For the toffee sauce:
- 175g light sugar
- 50g butter
- 225ml double cream
- Chop the dates and leave them in hot water and baking soda until cooled and soaked. Then mash it while adding vanilla.
- Butter and flour seven small pudding tins, or one large, up to you!
- Mix the flour with soda and add the eggs, sugar, and butter and beat them together. Beat until the mixture is slight creamy and then add the treacle along with step by step addition of milk and mix again until all the milk is used.
- Stir the dates into the batter and mix well.
- Put it into the tins and bake 20 – 25 minutes in a preheated oven at 350F.
- Meanwhile melt the butter, sugar and treacle of the sauce in a pan at very low heat, while stirring gently.
- Then stir the double cream in and increase the heat.
- When it boils take it off the cooker.
- When you take the cake out of the oven, prick it with a fork all over the surface. Make sure that you make as many little holes as you can.
- Then pour the sauce over it and completely cover it.
You can have it right away once cooled, but do you what is even stickier? Leaving the small puddings covered in a foil for two or three days. You do not have to put it in a refrigerator. Simply leave it sealed with a foil and heat it for 4 – 5 minutes when you are going to eat it.
