Sticky Toffee Pudding with Caramel Sauce

A Well Seasoned Recipe - Visit us in store on 64th Avenue, in Langley, BC


Ingredients for Pudding

  • 1 ¼ cups packed (8 oz) dates, chopped
  • 1 cup (8 oz) boiling water
  • ½ cup (4 oz) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup (8 oz) brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 ¾ cups (8 ¼ oz) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Ingredients for Caramel Sauce

  • 1 ¼ cups (10 5/8oz) heavy cream
  • 2 cups (14 oz) sugar
  • 5 teaspoons (1 ¼ oz) corn syrup
  • 6 Tablespoons (3 oz) butter, cut into chunks
Instructions for Pudding:
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9” springform pan and line the bottom with parchment or a grease up your pudding pan (available for purchase at Well Seasoned). Place on a baking sheet.
  2. Place dates in a small heatproof bowl. Add boiling water and allow to cool about an hour.
  3. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Measure butter and sugar into a stand mixer fitted with whisks and beat to blend. Add two eggs, one at a time, beating after each until well combined. Add half the flour mixture and beat to combine. Add remaining two eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add remaining flour mixture and just till blended.
  4. In small bowl, stir together instant coffee and baking soda. Add to cooled dates and stir to combine. Add to batter and beat till evenly incorporated.
  5. Pour into prepared pan and bake until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool just till warm. Run a knife around the edges of the pan and remove ring. If desired, dust with icing sugar. Cut into wedges and serve with caramel sauce and whipped cream.
Instructions for Caramel Sauce:
  1. Bring cream just to a boil and set aside.
  2. Combine sugar, corn syrup and 1/4 cup water in a large saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Use water and a heat resistant pastry brush to wash any sugar from the sides of the pan. Increase heat and boil without stirring until syrup turns deep golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Add warmed cream and butter (caramel will bubble up vigorously). Return to low heat; stir until any bits of caramel dissolve.
  4. Cool and store in airtight container in fridge for several days. Serve warm over Sticky Toffee Pudding.
