Sticky Toffee Pud! Yummy

I think this is an all time favourite with so many people I just had to put it on my Blog. I got this one from the ABC radio. My husband heard it on his drive home (yes I know, he is a 774 listener) and he wanted me to cook it fro him. SO not only did I have to cook it for him I had to walk over to Southbank and get the actual recipe from the ABC studios! The things we do for love!! Definitely not for the diet conscious person but worth every mouthful.

Ingredients

1 cup chopped Dates
1 tsp Bi-carb Soda
1 cup Boiling Water
2 tbsp Butter
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
1 1/2 Cups Self Raising Flour

Sauce

1 cup Brown Sugar
3/4 cup of cream
1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence
2 tbsp Butter

Method
  • Preheat Oven to 180 degrees Celsius, grease a pudding dish or 6 ramekins
  • Mix dates and bi-carb soda in a heat proof dish, pour over boiling water and leave to soak
  • Meanwhile cream the butter and sugar until creamy and then add the eggs one at a time.
  • Mix in Self Raising Flour
  • Stir through the date mixture
  • Pour into prepared pan/s
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes depending on what dish you are using
  • For the sauce place all ingredients in a small saucepan. Just before serving heat until the butter is melted and the sugar dissolved. Pour over slices of pudding or individual puddings and serve with double cream...............Mmmmmm Yummy
