Sticky Toffee Pudding Recipe

This sticky toffee pudding recipe came from a maths teacher who needed the sugar after an afternoon with a bunch of teenagers!

Never known to disappoint, this pudding is a classic.

We loved this pudding in Taiwan and we still love it.  When you were away from home and sometimes feeling a little home sick, Sticky Toffee did the trick.   It will never go out of fashion.
