Anyway, I found myself consulting my cookbooks and eventually the internet for a recipe for a dateless sticky toffee pudding and found this one on the allrecipes website. I never needed to make it myself until now. In fact he obviously thought we were bonkers to have asked!Which confirms my original suspicion that the dates melt away into a delicious nothingness, so if I ever make STP again I will include them as I'm sure they must add something lovely to the flavour. Your email address will not be published. Can I replace the coffee with cocoa powder or leave it out altogether? I’m not a coffee lover, either, but I’m afraid omitting the coffee or subbing cocoa will absolutely ruin this dessert :( If you want, just put like 1/2 tsp less, but if you were served this in a restaurant, you would never know they had put coffee in it, honest. Yes, Lynne.

Okay Todd, I’ve updated the post to include a printable recipe! I am linking this to the Great Bloggers Bake Off, hosted by Mummy Mishaps. My husband would tell you that there is nothing worse than ordering a sticky toffee pudding for dessert and finding it full of dates. I think this would be a lovely pudding with a traditional Sunday roast and Yorkshires. Oh I completely agree, Bea! STP! i also don’t care for large chunks of dried fruit in desserts – partly a texture issue for me- and advocate mincing the dates up in a food processor until it almost becomes paste – i think it helps distribute the flavor evenly in the batter. I’ll even send you a FREE printable. I'm planning to make it again next time we have friends around for dinner - It's one of those puddings you know would please a crowd! I loved the black forest fondant too! have you ever tried adding spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and/or cloves? Add 2 eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, and scraping down the bowl.

Let it stand for a few minutes before serving. Oh, I’m sorry, Jackie! * means the recipe requires very little faffing. To insure that they pop out easily, I’d butter the bottoms of the ramekins very lightly, then cut out some wax or parchment paper and place in the bottom of each one, and butter it again. Awesome! Love from India❤️, Oh that’s wonderful, Jubby!

I love to get feedback from readers. Can I double this recipe to make a 9×13 pan for a larger crowd. Right? Tasted just like what we had in Scotland. ;) P.S. There will be plenty of sauce left over to serve separately with the pudding. I agree with Dom - I think your Nick just hasn't noticed that dates are in the STP - I've never made one without. Thanks for letting me know! I love the idea of letting the sauce seep in like that - bet it's delicious! It’s real whipping cream, lightly whipped. I made this last night for the first time and it was divine! You’re instructions & pictures are so easy to follow. :). Never had a sticky pudding before, looks wonderful. I added a tablespoonful of treacle to the cake mixture. i usually double the sauce recipe for just that purpose. « Corn on the Cob with Indian Spiced Butter, Simple White Chocolate Raspberry Blondies », Easy Healthy Recipes with a Touch of Spice.

Now with no trips on the horizon I finally gave in and promised to make him one. I am excited to make this recipe for Christmas Eve!

Seriously, you have no idea how much just one comment like this really makes me feel wonderful. I would love to have a “printer friendly” version of this recipe :) I cut and copied all text to a document and printed it that way, but it was a lot of work. :-) I don't like dates either (although I've discovered that European dates are different to Australian dates and can be edible, although never necessary...).
