One of the Best Scottish Recipes for Sticky Toffee Pudding

Scottish recipes for sticky toffee pudding are really popular and no wonder – this dessert is heavenly! The following recipe is an authentic recipe for sticky toffee pudding and features mouthwatering ingredients like dates, treacle, vanilla, syrup and more. The sauce is made with instant butterscotch pudding. Unlike when you make pudding normally, in this recipe you are going to use extra milk.

This makes the pudding really thin and sauce-like. You can make it in advance if you like and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it. You can thin the sauce even more with a little extra milk before serving, if you think it needs it. Serving the chilled sauce over the hot pudding is great and this rich dessert is a wonderful winter warmer.

You can make sauce for desserts using any kind of instant pudding. Simply make it up following the instructions on the package and add an extra cup of milk, then pour it over your favorite dessert. Pudding comes in many flavors, including vanilla, pistachio, pumpkin spice and lots more, so why not try making an easy sauce with it?

Doesn’t this photo just make you want to lick the monitor? If you have never made a sticky toffee pudding recipe, this one is heartily recommended! Scottish recipes for sticky toffee pudding are the best ones and pairing it with a homemade butterscotch sauce is a great idea, especially when you can make the sauce while the pudding cooks. With pudding, you usually need to leave it in the refrigerator for a few minutes to set but obviously a sauce is not meant to set so make it five minutes before the sticky toffee pudding comes out of the oven and you’re good to go!
