What does Christmas mean to you? For me, its joy, merrymaking, dancing, parties, decorating, feasting on Roast Turkey, Roast Duck and other delicacies. But what about dessert?
As the Christmas vibes are all around and everyone is excited. So, I share with you the Christmas delicacy which will be loved by one and all, especially kids. This one will definitely be the perfect end to your special meal.
Sticky Toffee Pudding is a British classic, a deliciously moist pudding made with dates and covered with toffee sauce. Best served with a Vanilla Custard or Vanilla Ice-cream.
- Butter – 40 g
- Brown Sugar – ¾ cup
- Eggs – 2
- Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
- Cinnamon Powder – 2-3 pinches
- Baking Powder – 2 tsp
- Flour – 1 cup
- Dates – 1 cup
- 2 tbsp Rum
For Toffee Sauce:
- Brown sugar – 1 Cup
- Butter – 1 Cup
- Water – 2/3 Cup
- Brandy – 2 tsp
- Take the dates and soak them in half a cup water.
- Boil the date, mix them together to make a puree.
- Mix rum in it.
- In a bowl, the butter and brown sugar and whisk it together.
- Add one egg, whisk the mixture further then add the second egg and whisk it again.
- Scrape the sides of the bowl. Keep whisking until the sugar, is mixed completely and the butter has melted. It will take about 5 minutes. The colour and texture will change. Add the vanilla essence, date puree to this mixture and blend it together. Now Add the cinnamon powder, baking powder and flour.
- Use the Cut and fold method to mix the ingredients, until it reaches a fluffy texture. This will be the dough for the cake.
- Grease the cake mold with cooking spray/butter etc. Pour the prepared batter into the cake mold. Spread it evenly to fill up all the air pockets.
- In a preheated oven bake the cake for 20-25 min at 180 degrees.
- Boil together the brown sugar, butter and brandy in water to make the toffee sauce. Leave it aside.
- Take the pudding out of the oven after it finishes baking.
- Take a fork and use it to prick the pudding. Do this all over the top.
- Drizzle the prepared toffee sauce over the top of the pudding so it seeps into it and serve.
