Sticky Toffee Pudding

by . Featured in AT MY TABLE

Introduction

There is very little that can compare with the glory of a sticky toffee pudding. My STP is altogether deeper and darker than the original version: it is still sweet, but the muscovado sugar and black treacle give it an almost savage intensity.

It shouldn’t be eaten piping hot, but warm: once the sponge has been topped with a glaze of the sauce you should leave it for 30 minutes before serving, though you can easily leave it for up to an hour. I recommend serving this with the Salted Caramel Ice Cream - in fact, I positively urge you to. (And for Christmas, I suggest the brandified version.) The combination is truly joyous.

You will find it easier to measure the treacle if you dip the spoon into boiling water or run it under the hot tap first.

  • I love Sticky Toffee Pudding, and when I saw this recipe I decided to try to make it myself. It is delicious, it is an easy to follow recipe. This is the second time I have made it (in 7 days) & have had rave reviews from my family. Thank you Nigella, a great desert for a Sunday family dinner.

  • I'd never eaten tasted a STP before but made this as it's hubby's most favourite and we had friends over for dinner last night. I was stuck as wanted to make it in advance so compromised and made the sponge up and left it until they arrived before baking it, I'd also made the sauce which I gently reheated in the microwave prior to adding over the top once baked and to serve. It was a mega hit and is going to be made many times I'm sure, thank you Nigella!

  • Oh my goodness, just made this sticky toffee pudding recipe for the first time, super easy and tasted great. Very sweet and would consider only making half the sauce next time but was a real hit with everyone.
