Description:
Sticky Date Pudding! You are my favorite and always will be. Also known as Sticky Toffee Pudding, the simple trick that makes all the difference is to pour some Butterscotch Sauce over the warm cake when it comes out of the oven. It makes it ultra-moist and gives it that intense dark color. In addition, more sauce to serve, of course! This rich, delicious, and luxurious dessert is great comfort food on a cold winter’s night.

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time6 minsCook Time14 minsTotal Time20 mins
 One cup flour
 1 tsp baking powder
 2 ½ ounces dark chocolate, grated
 7 ounces chopped pitted Piarom dates
 1 ¼ cups water
 1 tsp baking soda
 ¼ cup softened butter
 ¾ cup superfine (castor) sugar
 2 eggs
 One cup heavy cream
 One cup firmly packed brown sugar
 One cup butter
 2 tbsp confectioners’ sugar for dusting
 3 cups vanilla ice cream
1

Preheat oven to 350℉ (175℃). Grease a 12 cup muffin tin. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and chocolate in a small bowl, and set aside.

2

Bring the dates and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Remove from the heat, and stir in the baking soda. Allow the mixture to stand for 5 minutes, then scrape into a blender, and carefully puree until smooth; set aside.

3

Cream one-fourth cup of butter together with the superfine sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition. Fold in the flour mixture and the date puree until well blended. Spoon into the prepared muffin cups.

4

Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together the cream, brown sugar, and 1 cup of butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat until the butter melts; set aside.

5

When the puddings have baked for 25 minutes, remove them from the oven, and cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove the puddings from the muffin tin, and place them onto a baking sheet. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the sauce over each pudding, then return to the oven and bake for 5 minutes more.

6

To serve, spoon some of the sauce onto the bottom of a dessert plate, and place a pudding on top. Lightly dust with confectioners' sugar, and top with one-fourth scoop of ice cream. Repeat with the remaining date puddings.
