Did you know that sticky toffee pudding is the world’s favourite pudding? It is! It’s believed to have been created in England’s beautiful Lake District a few decades ago (served at a country house hotel), although pubs in Yorkshire and Scotland also claim to have first created it. This rich date sponge covered in syrup sauce is also popular in Australia, known as ‘sticky date pudding’. Try this recipe for Sticky Toffee Pudding (The Veg Space).
Keep these puddings away from pets due to toxic ingredients like chocolate and dried fruits (never use fresh dough or xylitol sweetener near pets).

Sticky Toffee Pudding Mug Cake is from the book Vegan Mug Cakes. If you don’t like using microwaves, you can preheat your oven, then use an oven-safe ceramic mug or use small ceramic ramekins. These pretty stone baking dishes are oven, freezer and dishwsher-safe and can also be used in the microwave, if wished. Fill the batter up half-way to the top, then bake for around 15 to 20 minutes, until a clean toothpick comes out. Cool for a few minutes, to allow the hot batter inside to cool a little, before eating.
