Ricky’s Sticky Toffee Pud

Ricky’s Sticky Toffee Pud

Serves 6



175g Self–Raising Flour

175g Dates

175g Light Brown Sugar

50g Salted Butter

1tsp Vanilla Extract

1tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

2 medium eggs


In a bowl, cream the sugar and butter then add the vanilla essence.

Heat 300ml of water, the dates and bicarbonate of soda together in a saucepan until frothy. Be careful not to allow it to boil over. Then add everything, even the water, to the butter and sugar mix.

Sieve the flour into the mixture and fold in. Break the eggs into the bowl and stir thoroughly. The mixture will look really wet, but don’t worry, that’s perfectly normal.

Pour the mixture into a baking tray lined with non-stick greaseproof paper.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 190°C


100g Butter

100g Dark Brown Soft Sugar

1tsp Vanilla Essence

¼ Pint Whipping or Double Cream


Melt the butter, vanilla essence and sugar together in a pan, then simmer for a few minutes until it makes a caramel sauce.

Add the cream, occasionally it will split as the cold cream touches the molten sugar, so careful!

Simmer until it amalgamates and stir now and again for a further two minutes.

Cut the pudding into squares and drizzle over the sauce, top with a scoop of good vanilla ice-cream.

Enjoy your sticky toffee pudding....
