Hi Bold Bakers!

This little unassuming Mug Cake is about to blow your socks off! Bold words, right? Well this is a Big & Bold Microwave Sticky Toffee Pudding that takes just 1 minute to make in the microwave!

I’m a huge fan of Sticky Toffee Pudding and if there is an opportunity for me to make and eat it even faster then I’m all for it. The toffee flavor actually comes from dates in the cake (aka Sticky Date Pudding). It’s moist and decadent and a real treat for those days when you just deserve to treat yourself, you know the ones.

This is so good! I’d never had sticky toffee pudding before and a friend of mine kept going on about it so I had to try this. Mine ended up very dark, way darker than yours, so I was daunted, but it tastes delicious. I think maybe my dates were too large, I used 9 of what came out of my date package since they looked average to me and maybe that was still too much. If you ever get a notion to update this with a weight on those dates I’d be very interested! But not necessary as I… Read more »

10/10! Better than some restaurants I’ve had and I’m quite the sticky date connoisseur. Used 5 large medjool dates and topper it with a caramel sauce. Mix 2Tbs brown sugar, 1tsp butter and 1tsp milk in 10 second increments till smooth. Pour over the top of your pud and enjoy!

I made the caramel Sauce first then made this and WOWEE!! Girl you got me!! 🤤 I’ve been looking at new ways of cooking and new food as I don’t like what I cook and then I found your website 🥧❤

I followed the recipe using ingredients I already had in my pantry as I really wanted a quick and simple dessert for one person. So I subbed dried figs for dates and Spanish Peanuts for Walnuts and was delighted with the tasty results! I used 365 caramel sauce from Whole Foods to top it off. Simple, quick, and delicious!

For microwave recipes, it would be helpful if the microwave power used for the recipe is always among the standard info provided at the top together with prep time, cook time, etc.

On this recipe, can you substitute EggBeaters for the real egg?

Hey Gemma, just wondering, if I have homemade date paste, could I substitute that for the chopped dates? Thanks!😉❤️

Okay this has to be my new favourite mug dessert from you! I’ve tried almost all your mug cakes and desserts, and this and the mug donut are my faves! This is actually so easy and pretty quick to make. It’s good and moist even without caramel sauce. I do have a question though, can the butter be replaced with oil or something else? Because sometimes I’ll have all the ingredients except butter, and can’t get more. And is there any way to make a single serving of self-raising flour, just for this recipe? x

OMG who needs caramel sauce, this is delicious! I poured a little double cream on top, my husband was in raptures about it, I’m not a dessert person, but I’ll make this again x
