Sticky Toffee Pudding

Sticky toffee pudding is made from a classic cake batter with boiled dates added in. This dough is then traditionally baked in a pudding mould (bowl), not in an oven but in a saucepan, just like the Christmas pudding and many other puddings. It is served hot and topped with a caramel sauce.

In this recipe I’ll be making it in the oven, to add a touch of practicality and to not lose too much of the authenticity of the dessert.
