Little Sticky Toffee Puddings with Pecan Toffee Sauce
Yield: 8 Servings

6 oz dates, chopped
6 fl oz boiling water
3 oz butter, at room temp
5 oz caster sugar
2 eggs, beaten
8 oz flour
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp coffee essence
3/4 tsp baking soda

6 oz brown sugar
4 oz butter
6 Tbsp double cream
1 oz pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Begin by putting the chopped dates in a bowl and pouring boiling
water over them. Then add vanilla, coffee essence and baking soda.
Put to one side.

In a large mixing bowl cream butter and sugar together, beating
(preferably with an electric hand whisk) until mixture is pale,
light and fluffy. Now gradually add beaten eggs a little at a
time, beating well after each addition. After that, carefully and
lightly fold in the sifted flour using a metal spoon, then fold in
date mixture including liquid.

Divide the mixture equally between the eight 3-oz oiled ramekin
dishes. Place them on a baking tray and bake in the centre of the
oven for 25 minutes. Using a palette knife, slide it around each
pudding and turn it out. If they have risen too high, you may have
to cut a slice of the top so that they can sit evenly on the plate.
Place the puddings on a shallow, Swiss roll type pan.

Next, make the sauce by combining all the ingredients in a saucepan
and heating very gently until sugar has melted and all the crystals

Preheat broiler to its highest setting, and pour the sauce evenly
over the puddings. Place the pan under the broiler so the tops
are about 5 inches from the heat. Knock off any nuts on top to
prevent them browning. Let the puddings heat through for 8 minutes.
The tops will become brown and slightly crunchy and the sauce will
be hot and bubbling. Serve with chilled pouring cream.
