What You’ll Need


For the Sticky Toffee Pudding:

200g pitted dates, chopped

250ml boiling water

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

75g unsalted butter, softened

175g light brown sugar

2 large eggs

200g self-raising flour, sifted

For the Butterscotch Sauce:

150g light brown sugar

150ml double cream

50g unsalted butter

Pinch of salt

TFS Butterscotch flavour drops, to taste



1. **Prepare the Sticky Toffee Pudding:**

– Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease a baking dish.

– In a bowl, pour boiling water over the chopped dates and stir in the bicarbonate of soda. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until the dates soften and the mixture cools slightly.

– In a separate bowl, cream together the softened butter and light brown sugar until light and fluffy.

– Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined.

– Fold in the sifted flour until just combined.

– Stir in the date mixture until evenly distributed.

– Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and smooth the top.

2. **Bake the Pudding:**

– Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the pudding is firm to the touch and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

– Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly while you prepare the sauce.

3. **Prepare the Butterscotch Sauce:**

– In a saucepan, combine the light brown sugar, double cream, unsalted butter, and a pinch of salt.

– Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is smooth and bubbling.

– Let the sauce simmer gently for a few minutes until it thickens slightly.

– Remove from heat and stir in TFS Butterscotch flavour drops to enhance the butterscotch flavour. Adjust to taste.

4. **Serve:**

– Cut the warm Sticky Toffee Pudding into squares or slices and drizzle generously with the warm Butterscotch Sauce.

– Optionally, serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for extra indulgence.
