Sunday Sweets #19 Sticky Toffee Pudding

Sticky toffee pudding is one of those desserts that cannot fail to put a smile on your face and give your belly a big hug.  I like it served with custard for the ultimate warming treat, how do you prefer it? Custard or Ice Cream?

200g dried Medjool dates, stoned and chopped
250ml black tea
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
85g unsalted butter, softened
175g self-raising flour
1 tsp mixed spice
175g golden caster sugar
2 eggs

For the Toffee Sauce
100g light muscovado sugar
100g unsalted butter
150ml double cream

Heat oven to 180C / Fan 160C / Gas 4.

Butter an ovenproof dish or brownie tin.

Put the dates and tea in a saucepan and bring to the boil. 

Cook for 3-4 minutes to soften the dates. 

Stir in the bicarbonate of soda. 

Beat the butter and caster sugar together with electric beaters until pale and creamy, then beat in the egg, flour and mixed spice. 

Fold in the date mixture and pour into a buttered ovenproof dish or brownie tin. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is just firm to touch. 

Meanwhile, make the sauce by putting the sugar, butter and cream in a pan over a low heat and simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Cook until the sauce is a lovely toffee colour. 

Cut the pudding into squares and serve with the warm sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a little custard.
