Posted on


Likelihood is that you can surprise why any one ought to bother to post about something as frequently as sticky toffee pudding, specifically when the only symbol is of a solitary slice.  The reason is simple, that it was once nice, the perfect I have ever made (I have only ever made it two times previous than) and it could no longer include any dates.  For reasons that I don’t understand, Nick hates dates in his STP.


I made this for a family accumulating on a cold wintry day when comfort foods of the non-exotic kind was once in order.  In numerous words, Dad and his lady buddy were among the customer and at their ages (90 and 83) fancy foods this is laborious to bite shouldn’t have long gone down successfully!


The recipe comes from Mary Berry’s “Family Sunday Lunches” and is surely a winner.  It made a huge pudding or even with most people having seconds there was once however one piece left for me to {{photograph}} later.  It was once delicious.  You could find it in plenty of places on the net, without a doubt one in every of which is true right here. 
If truth be told, some other excuse for posting is that I know exactly the position to hunt out the recipe after I next need it!  Despite the fact that it is so unbelievably sweet and perilous for you that it is going to no longer be in no time.  My other makes an strive at STP will likely be observed proper right here then again I have to mention that this recipe is my favourite so far.
