Sticky Toffee Puddings Tips

  • Raisins: We love these puddings made with raisins. You can also use cranberries instead, or a mixture of both.
  • Baking Dish: You can use ramekins or muffin tins to bake these. If you are using ramekins you will need to butter 8, 1/2 cup ramekins. If you use a muffin tin, butter the cups, then fill all 12.
  • Serving Ideas: We enjoy these pudding cakes with whipped cream, but vanilla ice cream is amazing too!
  • Make Ahead Tip! You can make the cakes ahead of time and freeze them for later. Make sure to remove them from the pans before freezing, and don’t add the toffee sauce (add the sauce right before serving). Freeze the cakes in an airtight container or ziplock bag for up to 3 months.

  1. Hi Jo-Anna, I would like to use dates in this dessert, do you think that’ll be a suitable replacement for the raisins? Also, I’m going to be using a silicone muffin tin, will I still need to butter them? And, what am I looking for in terms of doneness when cooked in the muffin tin? Toothpick test when comes out clean? I’m making these tomorrow, if you could get back to me asap I would appreciate it extremely! Thanks!!
