My husband and I now live in Ireland. This was excellent! I no longer own a food processor, so I simply "cooked" the dates until they were smooth. Having read lots of Sticky Pudding recipes, I desired a thicker sauce. I cooked the sauce to more of a caramel. Removed the puddings from the pan, placed a small amount of sauce in the individual dishes, placed the puddings and poured the sauce over them and let them sit. They were placed back into the oven prior to serving to warm them and the sauce. Exactly how they are "done" over here. Next time I will serve them with a traditional custard as well. Thank you for sharing an easy and great recipe.
it was OK!
This was great! everyone simply loved it!! I would reduce the sauce by half next time tho..
I love 'sticky date pudding' but I leave the chocolate out and I also add 1 tbls of dark rum
This was absolutely amazing!! I made it just to get rid of some dates that I had and was VERY pleasantly surprised. I don't think I would only make half of the sauce, as one reviewer suggested. All of the sauce will be used up. I invited my critical neighbour over to try it and his face lit up with joy when he took the first bite! I'm pretty sure eating this put him in a better mood. I used half and half instead of heavy cream and light margarine instead of butter in the sauce. The taste was great but I'm sure the thicker sauce that would have resulted from using the heavy cream would have been amazing. I will definitely be making this again!
Delicious! I've been searching for a sticky toffee pudding recipe like the kind I had in Edinburgh and this is pretty darn close. Definitely 5 stars for taste, but 3 stars for the process and amount of dishes you get dirty. As others have stated this would be great for dinner parties since it makes 12 individual servings but if you have some leftover like me, refrigerate the puddings with some sauce on top of each one since it thickens as it cools. Microwave an individual portion and it's just as good as straight from the oven. I served mine with vanilla ice cream. Very, very good but will make only once in a while since each pudding is over 500 calories.
A great recipe, YUMMMYY! I did few alterations, I replaced dark choco (didn't have any) with coca powder and I have cut back half of the sauce. I HIGHLY recommend it.
Wow, what a winner. I made this for a group of mates for an after bbq pudding, and went down a treat as it was a really cold night and the guys were frozen. Having individual servings was fantastic and made a double recipe so have frozen the few that were left over. They are very sweet and rich though so cant eat too many (which is probably a good thing!!). Just divine, thank you so much for a fantastic recipe.
