Reheating The Sticky Toffee Pudding

Asked by sevanna. Answered on 9th July 2016

Full question

Is it possible to make the Easy Sticky Toffee Pudding ahead of time and reheat it the following day for guests?

Our answer

Nigella's Easy Sticky Toffee Pudding (from NIGELLA BITES) has the elements of the classic with a date-studded sponge and a toffee sauce. However the easy part is that as the pudding bakes, it creates its own toffee sauce in the base of the dish.

Unfortunately though these type of self-saucing puddings do not reheat very well as the sauce tends to thicken and be absorbed by the sponge as the pudding cools. So when you reheat the pudding it will have a sticky base but with very little sauce. If you are making the pudding for a party then before your guests arrive you can mix the flour, dates and sugar in a bowl and mix the milk, vanilla extract and melted butter in a jug. It is a matter of moments to add the eggs to the liquid ingredients and combine this with the flour mixture. If you boil a kettle while you mix then you will have the pudding baking in the oven in no time and it should cook in the time it takes to serve and eat a main course.
