Thermomix Sticky Date Pudding

A classic winter warmer and one of the most comforting desserts ever, this Thermomix Sticky Date Pudding with a creamy butterscotch sauce is to die for!

Thermomix Sticky Date Pudding

Okay, so this is the dessert not to have if you’re watching your waistline but we don’t want to think about that right now!  It’s cold, it’s raining and this Sticky Date Pudding is THE mother of all comfort foods.

Us Brits call it Sticky Toffee Pudding but I think Sticky Date Pudding is a bit more fetching.  It’s really quick and easy to prepare in the Thermomix and the ingredients can be found in a well stocked pantry and fridge.

It’s best served warm from the oven drenched in butterscotch sauce and if you like a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

The ultimate comfort food, this decadent Thermomix Sticky Date Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce is completely irresistible and a real family favourite.



For the Sponge

  • 225g pitted dates
  • 300ml freshly boiled hot water
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 80g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • 225g self raising flour
  • 180g brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 2 eggs

For the Butterscotch Sauce

  • 250g full fat whipping cream
  • 200g brown sugar
  • 130g butter, unsalted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


For the Sponge

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C fan forced (180°C) and generously grease the sides and bottom of a baking dish. The one I used measured 16cm x 22cm with a depth of 6cm.
  2. Add the dates to the TM bowl and cover them with the boiling water and leave for 5 minutes to soften. Add the bicarbonate of soda and puree for 20 sec/speed 6. Transfer to a separate bowl and set aside. Don’t worry about cleaning the TM bowl.
  3. Add the softened butter, flour, brown sugar, eggs and golden syrup to the TM bowl and mix 15 sec/speed 5.
  4. Scrape down the bowl and add the date puree and mix 10 sec/speed 4. 
  5. Scrape the bowl down and give it a gentle stir by hand to ensure it’s all mixed together and then pour batter into the baking dish and bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes.  Test with a skewer and if it comes out clean it’s ready to eat if not bake again for a few more minutes.

For the Butterscotch Sauce

  1. Place all the ingredients into the TM bowl and cook 5-7 mins/80/speed 3 until thoroughly warmed through.
  2. Pour over the sponge as soon as it comes out of the oven.
  3. Serve and enjoy!


Sticky date pudding is best eaten warm from the oven and tastes amazing with vanilla icecream.
