Recipe For Sticky Toffee Pudding

When my friend JustMe decided she was going to start food blogging as JustChef, there was no doubt in my mind there would be lots of great things to come. And, as she is setting challenges, and I love challenges, there was no ways I was not going to make the Fresh Living Decadent Sticky Toffee Pudding. Their by line is: Totally worth the indulgence on special occasions! My by line: try this only if you have a SWEET tooth, with a capital S.

I managed to ‘kill’ my scale on Friday night with the sauce that was spilled from the Tart Tatin. I called JustChef and she told me she used about 16 dates. As I was making half the recipe, I used 10 just to be sure.

Oh So Sweet Sticky Toffee Pudding
