Slow cooker sticky date pudding
You can’t beat a classic dessert like warm sticky date pudding on a cold winter's night. This crave-worthy pudding has a moist sponge cake on top and a gooey toffee sauce that forms underneath that will have you wanting to lick your bowl clean.
- 1 ⅓ cups self-raising flour
- ½ cup + 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 60g butter, melted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 ¼ cups dates, finely chopped
- Lightly grease your slow cooker with butter or oil. Combine flour and ½ cup brown sugar in a large bowl.
- Whisk together the milk, egg, butter and vanilla in a medium bowl. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Stir through the dates and pour the mixture evenly into the slow cooker.
- Mix the remaining 1 cup of brown sugar with 2 cups of boiling water and gently pour over the pudding mixture.
- Cover with the lid and cook on high for 1 hour 45 minutes or until the pudding feels firm and springs back when pressed in the middle.
- Remove the lid from the slow cooker and leave to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
This self-saucing pudding is best served with your choice of ice cream or a drizzle of fresh cream.
