Had some left over mini muffins that were just a little dry. What a fantastic way to use them up!

2 mini muffins in each ramekin without sultanas served four easily. So quick to make and tasted absolutely delicious. Made the muffins very moist and yummy, so don't write off leftover muffins for this recipe :)

Great quick fix. The toffee sauce can be used in so many different recipes.

Great idea - so quick. I used dates instead of raisins and just 2 muffins between 3 of us and it was plenty. Really good quick pudding.

Lovely, easy, quick.
That is this recipe summed up.

Brilliant recipe. So quick to make and delicious. I did this for three people and we had it two nights running so plenty for 4. I loved the banana version. Will certainly do this again.

It was the excellent reviews that persuaded me to try this - and I am so pleased I did! Great little cheat which tasted amazing. I followed the advice to soak the sultanas in sherry which made them taste delicious - highly recommended!

What a fantastic cheat, I made this for four but used 3 chocolate muffins, soaked chopped dates in dry sherry overnight and served with a very good vanilla ice cream. Lots of lovely comments on my cooking skills!! if only they knew ssshh

What a simple but delicious desert! I used 4 choc chip muffins and skipped the sultanas. It easily made 5 although everyone said next time make more of the yummy sauce!

so I made this for sunday lunch and the big reveal was very disapointing. I can honestly say this worst desert I have ever eaten or not eaten in this case. I was mocked by disgusted diners! On the positive side the potholes outside my house are now filled! Never ever make this!

Brilliant easy pud! Have made it twice this week with children, who have given up chocolate for lent, so we swapped the chocolate muffins for toffee muffins and it was yummy! Whole family loved it!

I live in France, where Sticky Toffee Pudding is scarce, so I made this on Saturday - YUM! And so quick. I didn't tell hubby (who is French) what it was but he realised straight away that it was a sticky toffee pudding.

Really tasty, simple and quick. Made one large instead of individuals though I'd probably make ramekins next time and use a muffin less as there was more than enough...I even had to eat a few chunks;o) Didn't soak the fruit but did dribble a little marsala over the sponge, only about a tablespoonful. The make ahead suggestion didn't work though...the muffins soaked up the sauce. Made another batch of sauce when we were ready for pud. Possibly a happy accident as the sponge was lovely and moist.

This was very delicious and quick to make, replaced the sultanas with chopped banana and it was perfect. Make sure you really crumble the muffins up though, if you just break it into 'chunks' there are too many gaps and the sauce just sinks through to the bottom. Loved the hot and cold combo when it has a scoop of ice-cream on top!

Yum! Yum! Very quick & easy to make. Was asked for seconds by the family.

Doubled up the recipe for a family lunch. Everyone loved it, and my son and his fiance requested it next time they came for dinner. I can see this is going to become a family favourite.

The best thing about it, apart from the taste, is that it really is so quick and simple to make.

This is absolutely divine (left out the sultanas) - however I found it didn't taste like sticky toffee pudding - more like a lovely chocolate brownie dessert. I'm not complaining!!
