A British classic, so tasteful and comforting!
I have seen several recipes of sticky toffee pudding for a while and since they were very similar, I decided to go ahead and try. This seemed so delicious and full of caramel flavor that I couldn’t miss it!
Most of these recipes include dates but I usually don’t have any in my kitchen. What I usually do have, are raisins. So I decided to use them instead and the result turned out really tasteful and the pudding was as beautiful as the many photos of sticky pudding I saw, as you can see on the following picture 😉
And as you can see, I enjoyed while reading one of the Harry Potter series, and that just paired perfectly: English book for and English baked good. Just delightful! [And Pudding is really often mentioned in Harry Potter so you can just feel you are there…].
If you are not so much of an Harry Potter fan, I am sure you love some other English book or movie you can enjoy while eating this toffee-flavor pudding.
Let’s talk a little about the sauce, shall we? Just…another caramel flavor, but with treacle to give it a contrast.
This recipe is for one medium pudding or two small cupcake-size: I baked one in a mini loaf pan [that I broke since…] and another one in an even small pan.
Let Pudding Time begins!
