Slow Cooker Sticky Date Pudding

This sweet slow cooker sticky date pudding is the perfect way to finish off a busy day. It’s relatively easy to get cooking and tastes amazing.

This delicious pudding cooks out to be incredibly moist and fluffy. By the end of cooking, you should also have a thick sweet sauce that just matches the pudding perfectly. To top this dish off, I highly recommend serving it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Make sure you don’t throw out any leftovers as they will reheat perfectly. Thanks to the pudding being really moist you won’t end up with dry leftovers. Just keep them stored covered in the fridge or freezer and reheat in the microwave or oven whenever you’re ready to eat. If you can’t be bothered reheating the pudding, then you will find that it is still surprisingly good cold.

Self-saucing puddings turn out absolutely great when they’re cooked in a slow cooker. This positive is mainly due to the way they cook by keeping the majority of the moisture inside the pot. The result is an incredibly moist and gooey pudding that will please anyone who loves sweets. It’s also the perfect way to feed a crowd without needing lots of baking dishes.

This pudding is fine just on its own and doesn’t need anything extra to go with it. With that said, ice cream or heavy cream goes perfectly on top. It just comes down to personal preferences, keep in mind extras will add more calories to this tasty slow cooker dessert.

The cooking times for this pudding is very forgiving thanks to the sauce. Just keep in mind the longer you cook it, the less sauce you will have by the end of cooking as the pudding will absorb it.

Cooking Tips:

  • To avoid the egg splitting when you beat them into the butter make sure both your butter and eggs are at room temperature. If they do split then don’t be afraid just to continue, there will be very little difference at the end of cooking.
  • You can make this sticky date pudding gluten free by merely exchanging the self-rising flour for a gluten-free version.
  • If you don’t like chunks of dates in your puddings, then you can blitz the date mix before adding it to the flour.
  • You can make this pudding in the slow cooker without the sauce. Just keep in mind it might not be nearly as moist and gooey.

If you’re not feeling like dates, then there is a ton of other delicious puddings that you can cook in the slow cooker. For example, the self-saucing chocolate pudding is one of my favorites and perfect for anyone who is a huge fan of chocolate desserts.

Personally, I absolutely love this slow cooker sticky date pudding, and I do hope that you will too. If you have any feedback, tips, variations, then please feel free to leave a comment below.
