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 »

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.

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!

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

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!

Checked the comments so made this with 4 medjool dates and half a flax egg (half a tablespoon of flax powder, 1.5 tablespoons water), plus some makeshift amount of self-rising flour and chopped almonds, and it turned out great! Even used my Bigger Bolder Baking mug 😂 It doesn’t make a lot but it is pretty hearty, even enough to share. Not too sweet, either, but just right. It was good on its own or with some salted caramel gelato. Will definitely be making this again and it is perfect for a mug vs full batch! Thanks for yet another… Read more »

I am usually in the UK in summer or winter. But it is different this year, with Covid and borders are closed, we are unable to travel anywhere. Sticky toffee pudding (STP) is a must have for me whenever I am in the UK. It is my favorite! 😉 Living in Asia, where there isn’t much choice of STP (if there is, they just do not taste the same!) This is amazing! Thank you Gemma. I just had my cravings fixed! XX
