Oh glorious sticky date puddings. Possibly one of the best Thermomix recipes I could imagine. I absolutely adore this dessert, they are so incredibly juicy and tasty, there is a guaranteed risk for addiction. Make sure to grease your dariole moulds before you pour the mixture in so that it is easier to release them later on. Steamed in the Varoma these puddings make a fantastic dessert.

  • 100 g unsalted butter plus extra for greasing
  • 250 g double cream or thicknened cream

    These are amazing! So light & fluffy & the sauce compliments the puddings perfectly. It’s extremely difficult to stop at just one! 😬. My husband made them & they are now his new favourite desert.

    Sophia, that sounds delicious! Do you think you can prepare in advance and reheat?

    • Sophia H Sophia H on February 9, 2020 at 8:38 am

      Yes you could, it might not be as perfectly fluffy but definitely possible.

    These mini puddings are simply delicious and you can replace the regular flour with gluten free flour and 1/4 tsp xanthum gum and the taste is equally as delicious; plus, you can freeze the puddings and reheat them in microwave them once they have thawed! A winner of a recipe! Thank you so much. I’ve served them withthe caramel sauce as per the recipe and also with a simple orange sauce – both delicious.
