In England, desserts are generically called pudding. This version of the classic sticky toffee pudding is studded with dried figs and bound to please – but it's the luscious sauce that will really make them ooh and ah. If you like, serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 12 oz dried Mission figs (about 2-1/2 cups), cut in chunks
  • 1 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Toffee Sauce:
  • 3/4 cups butter
  • 1 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cups whipping cream (35%)
  • 2 tablespoons whisky
  • 2 tablespoons brandy

Method

In saucepan, bring figs and 2-1/2 cups water to boil; drain and set aside.

In large bowl, beat together sugar, butter, lemon zest and salt until light; beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Beat in vanilla. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon; stir into butter mixture. Stir in figs.

Scrape into greased 10-inch (4 L) tube pan or 10-inch (3 L) Bundt pan. Bake in bottom third of 350°F (180°C) oven until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.

Toffee Sauce: Meanwhile, in saucepan, melt butter with sugar over medium heat, stirring until dissolved. Add cream and bring to simmer; simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in whisky; keep warm.

Place cake in pan on rack and immediately poke deep holes all over top with skewer. Pour 2/3 cup of the toffee sauce over warm cake; let stand for 10 minutes to absorb.

Invert cake onto serving plate; let cool slightly. Serve warm, drizzled with remaining warm sauce.
