Move over cupcakes, cake-pops and cookies. The next big thing is going to be Sticky Toffee Pudding! We’re making this happen by marking International Sticky Toffee Pudding Day today (January 23). As self-appointed dessert activists we think that STP is the best. And it is made out of dates.
Living in the Kuwait/The Gulf, we have access to the world’s best dates, so you can imagine the variations we can get of this beloved classic.
We also have instructions from Sarah Al-Hamad’s exquisite cookbook (click the link for our review). “Sunbread and Sticky Toffee” is the perfect mentor to making the best Sticky Toffee Pudding. The book is gorgeous so if you just end up looking at the pictures and reading the history, we totally understand!
If you don’t really want to make one from scratch then go ahead and stop by these local spots for some sweet sticky goodness.
In the name of authenticity, Marks and Spencer’s in Salmiya have great ones in the frozen foods section. Buy two, one for now and one for later! We won’t judge.
Nino have taken the classic and reinterpreted it. Rose water and pistachio ice cream are additions we can get behind.
Always a favorite, Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake freshly baked with molten date & rose water, caramelized vanilla custard, butterscotch sauce and pistachio ice cream كيك التمر وماء الورد المخبوز، كسترد الفانيليا بالكراميل مع صلصة البترسكوتش وآيس كريم الفستق #nino #kuwait #italianfood #sweet #shareornot
Crumbs have gone a more traditional route, but by no mean ordinary or boring.
If your eyes eat before your stomach then Dar Hamad is your destination. The plating, the ambience and the artistry are on par with the taste of this amazing dish.
Be entertained by watching your food get cooked by flames right before your eyes at B+F Open Flame Kitchen, then have some ice cream with your pudding to cool things down.
Bateel know dates real well, so it makes total sense they would know how to create a really good sticky toffee pudding.
You now know how to get some delicious pudding. We are counting on you to champion this great yet very humble dessert!
