10 Minute Sticky Date Molasses Pudding

A cheat’s take on a sticky toffee pudding, made in a fraction of the time but equally delicious.
It takes just 2 minutes to whisk these ingredients together and only 3 minutes to cook in the microwave.

Date molasses makes a delicious and healthier substitute for toffee sauce and is ready to pour straight from the bottle.


For the sponge:

50g soft unsalted butter

50g caster sugar

50g Odysea Date Molasses

2 large eggs

100g Self Raising Flour

Zest of 1 orange

40g walnuts


For the drizzle:

100ml of double cream

generous drizzle of date molasses

few whole walnuts for decoration



  1. Mix all the sponge ingredients (except the walnuts) together with an electric whisk and then fold in the chopped nuts.
  2. Pour the batter into a greased 1.2L plastic pudding bowl and microwave on HIGH for 2.5 to 3 minutes until cooked all the way through.
  3. Turn the pudding out onto a plate, top with the whole walnuts and pour the cream and date molasses over the top.
  4. Serve and eat immediately.
