Salted caramel sticky toffee pudding squares by Avonmore

Makes 9 squares

For the pudding:

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

200g dates, pitted,

300ml water
180g dark brown sugar

1⁄8 tsp salt

60g Avonmore Butter, at room temperature

170g self-rising flour
2 eggs

For the salted caramel sauce:

250ml Avonmore Fresh Cream

100g Avonmore Butter
100g dark brown sugar
170g treacle
1⁄4 tsp flaky sea salt, plus extra for serving

To serve:

Avonmore Whipped Cream

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 ̊C/160 ̊C fan/gas mark 4. Grease a 20cm square baking dish and line with parchment paper. Place the dates and the water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil for five minutes, then stir in the bicarbonate of soda.
  2. Transfer the dates and water to a food processor and blitz until smooth.
  3. Use an electric beater to cream the butter and sugar together over medium speed for about five minutes or until fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time and mix until just combined. Add the date purée and mix until smooth.
  5. Sift the flour into the mixture and fold in. Use a whisk to break up any lumps from the flour.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared dish and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  7. Leave to cool for 20 minutes, then use a skewer to poke holes into the top of the cake.
  8. Add all of the ingredients for the salted caramel sauce to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over a medium heat. Simmer for five minutes, then remove from the heat. Pour half of the sauce over the cake, reserving the other half for serving.
  9. Leave the cake to cool to room temperature, then slice it into nine squares.
  10. Serve the cake with extra sauce poured over, a sprinkle of flaky salt and the Avonmore Baileys Whipped Cream.
