When I was browsing through the International Cooking section in Library I saw this small cute book called, Easy British cooking by Ryland Peters and Small
As always I flipped to dessert section which had THE best desserts..Lip smacking, I must say
Can you guess what I did next? Went straight to Super market and picked ingredients for 3 of the desserts from that book!!!
I decided to try the sticky toffee pudding first..
Let me warn u, you better double the toffee sauce; else you will have to make it again:-) Its that yummy..
175gms Dried Dates-Chopped
300 ml boiling water
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
175 gms Caster Sugar
225 gms Plain flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
For Toffee sauce
100 gms Brown Sugar
50 gms butter
200 ml Cream
Preheat the oven to 180 Degree
Add the boiling water and chopped dates to a bowl. Stir in the baking soda and let it soak for 15 minutes
In a mixing bowl, add butter, sugar, vanilla extract and mix well.
Add in the eggs and continue to beat for a minute or two until well mixed.
Don’t worry about the texture, it won’t be fluffy..
Sift the flour and baking powder and add the flour mix to the mixing bowl.
Add the date’s mixture in two turns and mix well. The batter will be a bit runny
Pour the batter into a baking dish, you can use ramekins, muffin tray or a simple round pan.
Bake for 40-45 minutes till the skewer inserted comes clean.
While the cake is baking, let’s make the toffee sauce.
Mix all ingredients in a pan and heat in low heat until melted and smooth.
Serve the pudding with warm toffee sauce and enjoy the feel of the delicious dessert melting in ur mouth..
