Sticky Date Pudding, Toffee Sauce + Crème Fraiche

• 04 January 2011














































This crowd-pleasing Australian dessert is sure to warm your tummy during these chilly winter months. I've yet to meet someone who doesn't enjoy this Sticky Date Pudding recipe--it's absolutely delicious! The inclusion of dates always surprises people, but they love it every time. Be sure to use flavorful, moist Medjool dates; and heck, you might as well double the recipe while you're at it. It's that good. Seriously.

I'm sharing the recipe over at Zupas today.

(thanks Mary-Anne!)

I can vouch for the utter yumminess of sticky date pud. There was a time in the mid 1990s here in Australia when it seemed almost illegal for cafes *not* to have it on their desert menu!

Just what is creme fraiche? Anything that starts with the word creme I need to know about!

I have this recipe from Mary-Anne too and I love it. Yep, doubling it is a good idea.

Just had to pop over from google reader to say your food images are stunning. You rocked it girl!

p.s. the date pudding looks so yummy!

I think the Australian way would be double cream or icecream (or both)! Creme Fraiche is not so common here.

Stephanie said...

Alison, yes the creme fraiche is definitely my own personal addition--it wasn't part of the original recipe. Oh, but that soft, silky tangy cream is just what it needs!

Carol, here is a link to a post I wrote about creme fraiche, including how to make it. It's an amazing cultured cream from France:
