Toffee Pudding is a delightful dessert that offers a rich and sweet taste to satisfy any sweet tooth. It is typically a moist sponge cake made from finely milled flour, butter, eggs and sugar, generously drizzled with a warm toffee sauce that has a beautiful balance of sugar, butter, and cream.
This dessert is a true classic in British cuisine and is a perfect finish for a dinner party or a comforting treat on a chilly night. Toffee Pudding can be served warm, often with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of clotted cream.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Toffee Pudding expire?
If unopened, toffee pudding (store-bought) can last 2-3 months past the printed date on the package when stored in a cool, dry place like a cupboard or pantry. Once opened, it should be consumed within one week if kept in the refrigerator. Homemade toffee pudding typically lasts for about one week in the refrigerator. If frozen, toffee pudding can last up to a year.
How do you tell if Toffee Pudding is bad?
You’ll know your toffee pudding has gone bad if it starts to develop a strange smell that's not sweet and caramelly as you'd expect. The texture can also be a giveaway; if it’s become overly hard or even moldy, it's time to toss it. A shift in color towards a darker brown may also indicate that your toffee pudding is past its prime.
Tips for storing Toffee Pudding to extend shelf life
• Always keep your toffee pudding in an airtight container in a cool, dark place if unopened.
• Once opened or if it’s homemade, transfer toffee pudding to an airtight container and refrigerate it to maintain its quality and prolong its shelf life.
• If you want to freeze your toffee pudding, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, then in aluminum foil before placing in a freezer bag. This will prevent freezer burn.
• Thaw frozen toffee pudding in the fridge overnight before serving.
