Oh yummity yum yum! I often look at my old recipe for sticky toffee pudding, but it is absolutely laden with sugar- I’ll definitely give this a go! Thank you, Lovely Bianca xx

Love this recipe! Tastes just like real sticky date pudding, i can’t believe it can taste this good in 2mins! Makes quite a big portion. Half was enough for me, although my tastebuds were telling me otherwise. Used unhulled tahini as that’s all I have and it was sooo yum.

What could I use instead of almond butter?

Nat B April 1, 2019 - 1:25 am

I used Peanut Butter and it was delicious!

Jodi Harvey August 25, 2017 - 10:16 am

This was delicious! It’s a large serving size (more like 2 I think) which is never a problem! Just like sticky date and I had all the ingredients ready to go except I used real dairy cream instead of coconut as that is what I had. Will definitely be making again and again… 🙂
