1 Minute Sticky Date Pudding In a Mug- Moist and decadent, this mug cake will blow your socks off AND it’s make in minutes in the microwave

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.

I have my Mum’s recipe for fig pudding and the batter is made. I don’t want to cook it as she did, by steaming it in a pot for hours. I want to cook it in the microwave oven. It has suet in it for shortening and I don’t know how hot suet needs to get before it is safe to eat. Do you?

Hi Gemma,
Greetings! This was my first time trying a mug recipe and it came out wonderfully. The recipe is incredibly easy and delicious. Tried with Vanilla ice cream. Definitely gonna try the other recipes too.

Very moist and flavourful. I cut back on the brown sugar but not the caramel topping :-D. Walnuts were a great addition. Hubby liked it too. So quick and easy… a game (and weight) changer!!
