Why are the British so crazy in love with sticky toffee pudding?
According to Bon Appetit Magazine, it's the most popular dessert in the world.
Sticky toffee pudding is almost a national pastime in England. And for good reason--it's incredibly good. It's so good that it will make you a hero in your own neighborhood; your family will love it and your friends will be amazed.
Sticky toffee pudding is more of a cake than a pudding. Think of a moist, dense cake covered with a thick, sticky toffee sauce. It's a fruity dessert loaded with little pieces of dates which make it dense, moist, and flavorful. It's finished off with a rich and caramelly sauce, it melds into a total taste experience.
It's really simple to put together. It's like mixing a cake mix from the store. Then, while the cake is baking, mix the sauce: melt the butter in a saucepan, add the sauce mix contents and water, and cook for three or four minutes--until it boils.
This is a great dessert for a busy weeknight when you want a fancy dessert but you're out of time. The prep time on this only about ten minutes.
You can make this as a 9 x13-inch dessert or make 18 to 24 cupcakes.
