Apple Sticky Toffee Pudding Bundt Cake


The perfect mashup of holiday treats from the good ol' US of A and our dear friends from across the pond. Made with dried figs, this is the dessert made famous from Christmas carols; yes, figgy pudding is real, my friends. I took liberty with my rendition by adding in apple cider to round out the flavors and baked it off in a bundt pan to add some aesthetic to the shape. Because, let's be real, sticky toffee pudding is usually made in a muffin tin and albeit delicious, leaves a bit to be desired in the looks department. And for my American friends, pudding in this iteration is not what you know as pudding. It's cake. Sweet, glorious, wonderful, never-lets-you-down cake.


 

In the bowl of a food processor:

1 1/2 cups (200 grams) dried figs, chopped

1 cup (245 grams) warm apple cider

Bowl #1

6 tablespoons (80 grams) butter, room temperature

1/3 cup (95 grams) dark brown sugar

2 whole eggs, room temperature

3 tablespoons molasses

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

Bowl #2

1 1/2 cups (215 grams) cake flour

1/4 teaspoon baking soda
