Sticky Date Pudding and Sauce
Famously known as sticky toffee pudding and butterscotch sauce. Made with dates and they are my favorite with healthy brown sugar and cinnamon. Additional butterscotch sauce for pouring over the warm bake witch moistens it and is so delicious. Make this recipe for a fine dining dessert or bake it in a roasting pan or rectangular dish. Obviously baking times would change. Serve for a delicious pudding for family.
Below are main ingredients needed for sticky date pudding is also known as sticky toffee pudding. You can use prunes as well for this recipe.
Then there are all the other ingredients such as eggs and flour and butter with cream and brown sugar. For the exact measurements and all the ingredients see the recipe attached.
Firstly chop the date finely then place them in a bowl with the baking soda and hot water. This softens them. Found that when chopped finely enough they do not need to be mashed to a paste. They will melt when baking. As long as they are finely chopped. See the instructions on the recipe below.
Mix all the other ingredients as per recipe and bake this mixture in a greased muffin pan and make the butterscotch sauce. Leave to cool on a cooler rack for about 5 minutes before removing them. Other wise they will break up. The butterscotch sauce poured over the warm puddings to soak in and keep some or make double for pouring over once served.
Serve on a bowl or plate that will hold the sauce. This may be serve as a fine dining dessert with a gourmet meal. Additionally serving it with ice cream or custard is another option. Its very delicious and make a great moist pudding.
