Posted on


Chances are high that you can surprise why anyone ought to trouble to submit about something as regularly as sticky toffee pudding, in particular when the only symbol is of a solitary slice.  The reason is simple, that it used to be nice, the perfect I have ever made (I have only ever made it two times previous than) and it might no longer include any dates.  For reasons that I don’t understand, Nick hates dates in his STP.


I made this for a family collecting on a cold wintry day when comfort foods of the non-exotic kind used to be 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 exhausting to chunk do not have long gone down successfully!


The recipe comes from Mary Berry’s “Family Sunday Lunches” and is certainly a winner.  It made a huge pudding or even with most people having seconds there used to be nevertheless one piece left for me to {{photograph}} later.  It used to be delicious.  You can find it in a variety of places on the internet, indisputably one among which is correct right here. 
If truth be told, every other excuse for posting is that I know exactly the position to hunt out the recipe when I next need it!  Regardless that it is so unbelievably sweet and threatening for you that it is going to no longer be in no time.  My other makes an try at STP shall be observed proper right here alternatively I have to mention that this recipe is my favourite so far.

(I dare say that when you should not have stem ginger in syrup in stock, a couple of teaspoons of ground ginger would do the process instead.)
