Sticky Toffee Pudding in a Mug (besthomechef)

Sticky Date Pudding

10 dates, roughly chopped
1 1/2 T boiling water
1/8 t baking soda
1 1/2 T butter
1 1/2 T brown sugar
1 1/2 T self – raising flour
1/2 egg beaten
1/2 T walnuts, roughly chopped

In a mug place the chopped dates and water. Place in microwave for 50 sec until the dates are softened. Add the baking soda to the mug and let it sit for a minute and mash roughly with a fork. Add the butter into the mug and place again in the microwave for 10 – 15 sec to soften and melt. Add the sugar, flour and egg to the mug and mix to combine thoroughly with a spoon. Flatten the top of the mixture and sprinkle the walnuts on top. Place in the microwave on a saucer for 1 min. It may need a further 10 – 20 sec to finish it off completely, depending on your microwave.

Caramel Sauce

1 T butter
1 t milk or cream
4 T browns sugar

In an ovenproof ramekin add the sugar, butter and milk/cream and place in the microwave for 20 – 30 seconds. Remove and stir and repeat another 2 – 3 times depending on your microwave. You will end up with a dark caramel sauce. Drizzle over the sticky date cups and enjoy! Makes 1 serving.
