For the pudding

  • 110 g butter, softened
  • 175 g light soft brown sugar
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 110 g wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 50 g cranberries, chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp milk

For the sauce

  • 110 g cranberries
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 110 g light soft brown sugar
  • 25 g butter
  • 50 ml double cream


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, then blend in the eggs, vanilla, flour and cranberries, adding a little milk if necessary to give a fairly soft consistency.

  2. Spoon the mixture into lightly greased individual pudding basins. Cover each loosely with a piece of greased greaseproof paper. Place on a baking tray and bake for 25-30 minutes until well risen and just firm.

  3. For the sauce, place the cranberries in a saucepan with the water and sugar and heat gently until the cranberries pop and burst and the sauce reduces a little. Stir in the butter and continue for a few minutes until the sauce thickens and becomes slightly syrupy.

  4. To serve, turn out the puddings and pour on a little of the cranberry toffee sauce. Serve with thick cream or ice cream and the rest of the sauce.
