Sticky Toffee Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce

Serves 2-4


For the Cake:

  • 40g Unsalted Butter
  • 60g Brown Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 75g All Purpose Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • ⅛ tsp Ginger Powder
  • ¼ tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Espresso
  • 75g Dates, Chopped
  • 90ml Boiling Water

For the Butterscotch:

  • 50g Unsalted Butter
  • 70g Brown Sugar
  • 2 tbsp 35% Cream



  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • To start with making the cake, soak the dates in the boiling water for around 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cream together the 60g brown sugar and 40g butter in a mixing bowl. Add the egg and combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Add in the soaked dates and espresso and mix until all is incorporated.
  • Grease a small tray approximately 4” x 6” or small cake tin and scrape the batter into it.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until when checked with a skewer, it comes out clean.
  • In the meantime, start the butterscotch by taking a small saucepan and melting the 50g butter and 70g brown sugar over a medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Add the cream slowly and stir well until combined to a smooth sauce.
  • Pour the sauce over the cake and let soak in for a few minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy

Optional: add a scoop of ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
