Sticky toffee pudding time

Hello friends & followers ...

Do you find yourself finding leftover festive food bits in the cupboards still? I love dates & bought in some large, juicy medjool dates to use over Christmas but they were still lurking in the cupboard today so I thought it is time to use them up.

Instead of my usual date, banana & cranberry treats, I decided on  Nigella's sticky toffee pudding instead.

Easy Sticky Toffee Pudding by Nigella

for the cake

  • 100 grams dark brown muscovado sugar
  • 175 grams self-raising flour
  • 125 ml full fat milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 50 grams unsalted butter (melted)
  • 200 grams chopped dates

for the sauce

  • 200 grams dark brown muscovado sugar
  • approx. 25 grams unsalted butter (in little blobs)
  • 500 ml boiling water

It is quick & easy to make & I feel really pleased that those luscious dates will be used & enjoyed.

I confess that it is the first time I have made sticky toffee pudding; surprising as it is my favourite winter pudding.

I look forward to surprising the family with this treat which I know will be enjoyed as the temperature has dropped this week.

So friends - own up, do you buy in more than you need over the holidays & use it up?
