Sticky Toffee Pudding is a rich and cozy cake laced with fig puree and soaked in a sticky toffee sauce. A decadent, sweet, and comforting dessert that can be made up to 4 days ahead of time!
Now that my travels are over for the year, I’m settling into the holidays here at home. That means listening to the Ultimate Christmas Playlist on repeat, our annual Harry Potter Marathon, and lots and lots of BAKING!
There’s just something about baking that soothes my soul and I feel like it probably does that for a lot of people, even if you’re not good at it. Because if you’re not good at it, there’s resources like the eCookbook Chef Creations Inspired By Hood Cream to guide you through the process. The recipes in that cookbook are all inspired by Hood® Cream and I’m excited to be teaming up with them for the holidays to share delicious recipes like this Sticky Toffee Pudding and my Homemade Cinnamon Butter.
Back in September I got to enjoy a fabulous dinner at Deuxave in Boston, every dish used Hood® Cream in a new way, and my favorite, of course, was dessert! Which was this Sticky Toffee Pudding!
This dish stole my whole heart that night. It was an incredible finish to a spectacular meal. I’ve had toffee pudding before, but this one truly encompassed the cozy flavors I’ve always thought of in my mind. When I was eating it I was whisked away to the lochs of Scotland and the tiny pubs that serve up comfort food like you wouldn’t believe. It tasted like holidays at home and adventures abroad in one amazing finale.
And it’s funny that those are the things it reminded me of, especially since I didn’t have any Sticky Toffee Pudding when I was in Scotland or Ireland last year and I’ve never had it for the holidays. But it made me feel the way I did in those places and during those times. Comforted, Alive, Happy. Man, this Sticky Toffee Pudding is some powerful emotion-provoking stuff, and that’s precisely why all of you should make it for the holidays this year!
The cakes are baked in individual ramekins, which makes for easy servings and simple plating. The flavors of figs, brown sugar, and toffee blend for a crazy-delicious finish to the holiday meal. Add vanilla or rum raisin ice cream, whipped cream, and fresh berries or figs to complete the presentation and balance out the thick, sticky, goodness that is this cake!
