Martha Mondays – Sticky Toffee Pudding

Oh Boy! Sticky toffee pudding! Chosen by Lorraine of Sweet Lorraine Bakeshop, I was in heaven just reading the name, knowing that I would be able to come off my Special K diet for this treat. It was strange as although it is known as an English pudding and as someone who lives in England I have never tried it and neither had many of my friends. It is on dessert menus a lot but it has never taken my fancy.

This was a great recipe as apart from buying butter and cream, I didn’t have to stock up on anything else which I have had to do with other Martha Monday recipes.

The recipe was easy to make, and I halved it as there are only three of us.

Things fell apart (literally) when I tapped out the still warm cake as directed. I had greased and floured the pan well and the cake was fully cooked so although I thought it crazy to take a warm cake out of the pan I proceeded.

Expletives rolled around my kitchen as the cake fell apart, I had planned to serve it at dinner as a special treat for us. But I continued and ‘stuck’ the cake back together.

The toffee sauce was lovely and I poured this all over. It was wonderful.

I managed to get one reasonable portion out of the cake, but the rest is a bit of a mess. I had some left over and so put this in a jug to be poured over the cake – true joy!

We however loved it despite the way it looked (a good lesson here I think) and dad even had seconds. I will have my second portion whilst watching the X Factor tonight.

Thanks for a wonderful Martha Monday project – the most successful in the Singer household so far!!!

  1. It looks wonderful. I'll bet it tastes just as good. Nice photos too. I haven't been able to make mine yet. My husband has been sick and being so busy at school. I have to do the hearing screening, started Friday and going into next week.After seeing yours I'm sorry I missed it.

  2. Wow! Yours turned out beautiful! Great pictures. I'm thinking I must have cooked the sauce for too long; yours looked like just the right consistency and color. It was a delicious recipe!

  3. Pru, I love your blog already! This cake looks amazing, by the way!! I'll have to become a 'regular reader' myself! Congratulations on the launch.
