Sticky Toffee Pudding

On a cold day, nothing beats Sticky Toffee Pudding for a dessert.  It's easy to make and doesn't require a mixer.  Sticky Toffee Pudding is one of Britain's most loved puddings  and following a long, chilly day outside, this old-fashioned dessert really hits the spot. For convenience you can make the puddings a few days in advance and then, before serving soak them in the sauce.
