Easy 5 minute sticky toffee pudding recipe

One of the easiest ways of cutting your food bills down is by learning to make meals from what you have in your cupboards.  I’ve already posted two blog posts with recipes for doing this –  shortbread and cheese scones – and guess what? Here’s one more! And it’s for PUDDING!!

Easy 5 minute sticky toffee pudding recipe

If you’re too busy or hungover to pop to the shops or you’re skint, this is great because it tastes good, it looks deeply tempting and it’s so quick and easy.


For two portions, you will need:

2oz caster sugar

2oz butter

2oz self raising flour

2oz raisins

1 egg

2 tbspn milk

For the toffee sauce:

2oz butter

2oz dark muscovado sugar

60ml double cream

(If you don’t have cream in the fridge, why not replace the sauce section listed above with jam or golden syrup?)


Start with the sauce. Put all the ingredients in a small saucepan over a low heat. Mix well and then stir again occasionally. It should take about 5 minutes to thicken and go a gorgeous dark golden colour.

With one eye on the sauce, you can start the sponge. Cream together the butter and the sugar and then add the beaten egg and milk. It may look a little lumpy at this stage but don’t worry as the flour will fix it. Sift in the flour and fold in and you’ll be left with a smooth mixture. Next, mix in the raisins.

Pour into a large microwaveable bowl, cover with a plate and cook on high for 3 – 3.5 minutes.

OR if you want to be fancy, spoon into two separate dishes, and cook for 2.5 minutes.
