The traditional sticky toffee pudding recipe is given an autumnal twist with some freshly cooked pumpkin and some warming pumpkin spice. This recipe has been created in collaboration with Panasonic, using their new combination microwave oven.
I am a big fan of sticky toffee pudding. This time of year, when the days get shorter and colder, I crave these sorts of classic puddings. I’m also a big fan of pumpkin spices – that warming cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and ginger blend. This recipe is a twist on the traditional classic self-saucing sticky toffee pudding that we all love: I’ve cooked some fresh pumpkin from my veg box and added it, along with a generous helping of warming pumpkin spice for a new autumnal dessert.
This recipe was also cooked in my brand new Panasonic combination oven – it’s a microwave and a convection oven in one, and I can’t tell you how much this has revolutionised the things I can do in my kitchen! It’s been at least eight years or so since we last owned a microwave, and it was a dodgy cheap supermarket one so we got rid of it. My, how microwave ovens have evolved since then!
My new Panasonic combination microwave oven fits nicely into the corner of my workspace, and despite its roomier interior (you can cook a whole frozen 12-inch pizza in it!) it doesn’t seem to take up all the counter space.
As part of the launch campaign, I was invited to ask my Instagram followers via IG stories which classic school pudding they’d like me to make it in for my first recipe (with a fresh inventive twist). The results came in favour of recreating sticky toffee pudding (instead of rice pudding with jam), and so I set to work!

We loved this dessert so much that we made it again a week later with some more fresh pumpkin. Leftovers reheat really well in the microwave too, and, if you happen to have frozen pumpkin puree needing to be used up from last season in your freezer like me, the defrost setting means you don’t have to remember to take it out the night before.
Yes, this new appliance really has upgraded my kitchen, and it seems really user-friendly too. You can buy them online via John Lewis for £199 (at the time of writing this blog post; price subject to change).
