Sticky Toffee Pudding
Please note - this recipe is considered to be low carb rather than keto due to the ingredients of the shredded suet and the werthers'.
The sweeteners used in the Werthers' are isomalt and acesulphame-K. These are low carb due to their low GI, but they're not clean keto. The carbs listed on the Werthers packet are mainly from polyols, so have not been counted when tracking the macros.
Store-bought shredded beef suet contains some wheat flour to stop it from sticking together in the pack. Since Michele first wrote this recipe, we have been experimenting with some of our suet pastry recipe to make it clean keto. We have now included this addition in the instructions below!
You can either make these as 6 individual bowls, or 1 family bowl.

As this recipe uses sugar free sweets, it is not clean keto. The sweeteners used in Werthers' Originals have a very low GI, so we have not counted the carbs from these.
A large pudding bowl (around 600 ml) or 6 ramekins (around 175 ml) - if you don't have ramekins or pudding bowls, you could always use tea cups or mugsEnough saucepans (with lids) to fit these bowls or they can be cooked in shifts - You could use the ninja too, but I don't have enough experience with this yet!Greaseproof paperString & elastic bandsTea towels
100g Ground Almonds
40g Coconut Flour
80g Shredded Beef Suet (or 80g Beef Dripping if you'd like to keep this wheat-free)
1 tsp Baking Powder
100ml Unsweetened Almond Milk
5g Butter, for greasing
9 Sugar Free Werthers' Originals (Hard Boiled, not chewy)
120g Double Cream
Place the ground almonds, coconut flour, shredded suet, sweetener and baking powder into a bowl and mix to combine. If you're using beef dripping rather than suet, place these ingredients in a small food processor and pulse to break the dripping apart and form a breadcrumb-like texture.
Add the milk and stir to make a soft but crumbly dough.
Grease a pudding bowl (or ramekins) with melted butter or olive oil and line with greaseproof paper.
Sticky Toffee Sauce
Put cream and butterscotch sweets into a non-stick saucepan. Gently melt, whilst stirring constantly.
This will thicken into a glossy, thick sauce.
Don't rush this process, do not over boil and once it turns to toffee colour and all the butterscotch sweets have melted, take the pan off the heat.
Pour this toffee mixture into the lined pudding bowl, or share it equally between the ramekins.
Now back to the cake
Spoon the mixture into the bowl, over the top of the toffee sauce.
Gently, with your fingertips, press this into the bowl or ramekins.
Cover with a piece of folded greaseproof paper.
Put an elastic band to hold this in place.
Tie around the edge of this paper also with string to secure it in place.
Place the bowl or ramekins into a large lidded saucepan and fill the pan half to two-thirds of the way up the bowl or ramekins with boiling water.
Put a damp tea towel over the top, completely cover all the ramekins or pudding bowl. It's ok if the towel drapes into the water.
Cover with the lid, bring to a boil and simmer gently for one hour.
Keep an eye on the water, so that it doesn't boil dry and that it doesn't bubble over the height of the bowl either.
I set 1 alarm for 60 minutes and another alarm for every 15 minutes to check the water level.
Once cooked, you can leave them to cool in the pan, or pull them out of the pan and allow to rest for 5 minutes, before turning out onto a plate and gently peel off the greaseproof paper.
This pudding heats up really well in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds.
