Sticky toffee pudding is a classic dessert that hails from England, and has found its way into many cuisines; and as such, is an iconic dessert, beloved by many. Our Classic Sticky Date Puddings with Caramel Sauce is a familiar homage – a moist and sweet cake-like pot of warmth for winter months. Pair it with any of our Thermomix ice cream recipes and you won't make another dessert again! The benefit of steaming in the Thermomix preserves the moisture and luxurious texture. Go the whole hog and make your own caramel sauce (but store bought will suffice, too).
