Sticky Toffee Pudding –Method & Instructions


Pre-heat oven to Gas 4/180°C/350°F

Cut dates up into small pieces

Put dates into a pot

Add 8 fl oz boiling water to the dates

Bring to the boil and add 1 heaped tsp of baking powder (it can still be made without baking powder)

When you add baking powder it is normal that you will get a reaction and it will bubble up

Lower heat and simmer for 3 minutes

The mixture will look dark and will thicken, set it to one side to cool for use later

Warm bowl by placing over a hot pot of boiling water, remove bowl once heated

Put butter, both brown sugars and 2 tsp vanilla essence into a bowl (you can just use 200g of any brown sugar if you want)

Cream together butter and sugar with either a wooden spoon by hand or with an electric whisker or stand mixer

Whisk both eggs and add one egg at a time into your bowl

Beat well with a wooden spoon after adding each egg

Add black treacle to bowl (put a metal tablespoon into a jug of boiling water before hand, it helps treacle & syrup come off the spoon)

Add syrup into bowl (using hot spoon)

Mix with metal spoon

Add flour, third at a time, sieving it into the bowl

Fold the flour into mixture

Add the cooled date mixture into the bowl and mix with a wooden spoon (don’t worry if colour has changed, it may go a purple colour)

You can if you want to, liquidise date mixture before you add to the bowl if you don’t want any date pieces in your cakes

Pour mixture into a jug

Tip mixture from jug into muffin tins, filling ¾ way full allowing room for them to rise

Place in pre-heated oven for 18 – 20 minutes

Toffee Sauce –Method & Instructions

Melt butter in pot

Add soft brown sugar

Add vanilla essence

Add syrup

Add cream

Bring it all to the boil

Keep stirring and boil for 3 minutes

Take off heat and dish up sticky toffee pudding upside down in a bowl

Pour the toffee sauce over the sticky toffee pudding cake and serve

It is nice to serve with vanilla ice cream

  • 300g butter
  • 200g soft brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup (or maple syrup or honey)
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 500g porridge oats
  • 1 or 2 bars of chocolate

Flapjacks – Method & Instructions


Pre-heat oven – Gas 5 / 190°C / 375 °F

Melt butter in a pot

Add sugar to the melted butter

Add syrup (stand your spoon in a cup of hot water so the spoon gets hot. It helps syrup come off the spoon)

Add condensed milk

Cook on a medium heat

When it starts to boil cook for 1 minute

In a large bowl put in porridge oats

Pour your toffee mixture into the bowl of porridge oats and mix well with a wooden spoon making sure all porridge oats are covered with the mixture

Put greaseproof paper onto a baking tin

Pour flapjack mixture into baking tin and spread to about 2 inches thick

Place in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes

When it comes out the oven cut into squares of individual portions while it is still warm

Let the flapjacks cool for at least 15 minutes before eating

You can of course eat the flapjacks like this or you can put melted chocolate on them

Melt your chocolate of choice on a bain-marie (pot of hot water with bowl over the hot water and place chocolate in bowl)

Once the chocolate has melted use a tablespoon to spread the chocolate on the flapjacks

See the YouTube video for ideas of how to decorate your flapjacks with chocolate

If you have the patience at this stage you can let chocolate harden but if like me you can’t wait just eat and enjoy as they are

Have fun making your flapjacks and enjoy eating them
