Sticky Toffee Gingerbread Pudding Recipe🍮

This recipe is by Supervalu and tasted a lot better than it looks. It was delicious when served immediately and when the sauce was warm.

For the Pudding
  • 0.5 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 225 g Butter
  • 50 g Crystallised Ginger Finely chopped
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 1 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 150 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Mixed Spice
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt
  • 125 g Self-Raising Flour
  • 175 g Signature Tastes Medjool Dates Chopped
  • 100 ml Sour Cream
For the Whiskey White Chocolate Butterscotch Sauce
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • 150 ml Double Cream
  • 125 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 100 g White Chocolate Finely chopped

For the pudding; Grease a 2-litre pudding mould and pop it onto a baking tray. Heat the oven to 160°C.

Beat the butter and sugar in a freestanding mixer until light and fluffy.

Mix the flour, spices and ginger together in a bowl then beat into the butter mix with the eggs.

Add the dates and 100ml of water to a medium saucepan. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until the dates have softened. Stir in the bicarbonate of soda and it will become foamy, this is why you need a slightly larger saucepan.

Fold this into the rest of the ingredients along with the sour cream and a pinch of salt. Pour into the greased pudding mould and bake for 1 hour until fully cooked, risen and golden.

For the butterscotch sauce, combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan, except the white chocolate, stir together and bring to the boil, reduce the heat a little, simmer for a minute or two until it has thickened, then stir through the white chocolate until melted.

To serve, arrange the warm pudding on a plate and pour over the sauce.

Crushed Avocado on Toast with a Soft Fried Egg and Ballymaloe Original Relish Recipe🥑🍳

I usually have porridge for breakfast, so this was a nice change. This recipe is a perfect brunch option.

This is a Ballymaloe Recipe and serves 1.

🍬No Artificial Additives🌾Suitable for Vegetarians 🥛 Dairy free

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tsp chopped mint
  • a squeeze of lime juice
  • red or green chilli finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 slice of bread (preferably sourdough)
  • 1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 free-range egg
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • Ballymaloe Original Relish

Carefully remove the avocado flesh from its skin and mash with a fork. Add the mint and squeeze of lime. Season with salt and mix well. Add in some finely chopped chilli if you like a little heat.

Heat a little olive oil in a heavy-bottomed frying pan. Toast the bread in it for about two minutes on each side or until golden around the edges, ensuring it has absorbed all the oil. Take out and set aside. Wipe the pan with kitchen paper and put back on the heat.

When the fry begins to sizzle again, fry the egg in a little olive oil.

Spread the avocado mixture over the toasted bread. Place the egg on top and serve with Ballymaloe Original Relish on the side.
