    Toblerone Puddings with Caramel Sauce

    Much though we might aim to eat only single-estate chocolate with 80 per cent cocoa solids, we all have a soft spot for one or more varieties of a far less high-falutin' type. The pleasures of the Toblerone, for example, cannot be denied: from the way the nougat sticks in your teeth, to the pointy ends that you can dip in tea to create gooey wizard hats. Toblerone is also especially good when cooked, because of its chewy lumps of nougat that create a thick, nutty sauce under a puffy layer of sponge in this pudding. Crowned with a scoop of cold crème fraîche and a drizzle of caramel sauce, it has real 'Eat me!' appeal at the table. If it ever actually makes it that far!

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 25 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes 45 minutes

    Serves: 6


    • 200ml whole milk
    • 250g milk-chocolate Toblerone, chopped
    • 100g plain flour
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 25g cocoa powder
    • 125g golden caster sugar
    • 40g unsalted butter
    • 1 medium egg
    • 4 tbsp double cream
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • Crème fraîche, to serve


    1. Preheat the oven 180°C, gas mark 4. Heat 100ml milk in a saucepan until boiling. Remove from the heat and stir in 150g Toblerone. Set aside.
    2. Mix together the flour, baking powder, cocoa, 75g sugar and the rest of the Toblerone. In a separate bowl, whisk 25g butter, the egg and the remaining milk together. Mix this into the dry ingredients. Divide into 6 x 200ml ovenproof dishes. Spoon the Toblerone sauce on top. Bake for 20 minutes, until it rises and is set on the top but wobbly underneath.
    3. For the caramel sauce, place the sugar and 3 tbsp water in a saucepan and heat until dissolved. Continue to cook until it turns a deep gold, swirling the pan so it colours evenly. Pour in the cream. It will hiss, and the sugar may 'seize', or form into lumps. If this happens, continue to heat it until it melts. Stir in 15g butter and the vanilla. Set aside.
    4. To serve, place each pudding on a plate to catch the drips and scoop a spoonful of cold crème fraîche on top. Finally, drizzle with the caramel sauce.
