Pudding Love...........

..........Sticky Toffee Pudding to be exact.



I have been wanting to make this for a while, I just had to leave a bit of time in between baking. I LOVE baking.....but if i'm honest, the only person that eats it, is me (apart from the heart biscuits recently made....I didn't get a look in with those!). The Bears like a little bit, but in general, they are not 'bakey' eaters. Mr H will eat the fruits of my labour, but he has his favourites and likes to stick to them. Bakey, cakey lovelies don't have a long shelf life, so then it's usually me that scoffs them whilst they are still good enough to eat. So, I haven't made much recently, I just cannot justify it all going into one person!

But......making this was a must. And it was delicious!



Now, this is certianly not something I will be making all the time. I think it is a real calorific indulgence, but certainly a crowd pleaser. Making it in the tins made it that much nicer. A perfect treat to make if you have people over. Hot sticky toffee sponge that delves into a deep and rather generous layer of warm golden syrup, topped with melting clotted cream ice cream. Wickedly delicious!

So......nothing to be made for a while. I was a snuffle truffle piggy wiggy, but it was OH SO NICE.

If you fancy having a go, I have put the recipe on the baking tab at the top of the screen. It was taken from Eric Lanlard's 'Home Bake' book.

The recipe is also available online, just google Eric Lanlard's Sticky Toffee Pudding.

Happy Baking lovelies!

and

Happy Weekend too!

  1. Looks lovely!! I love how you've made them in the tins too, really unusual but very clever! I do know what you mean about sometimes not having enough people to eat your baking goodies though - with only the two of us here, often I end up throwing things away because they don't keep long enough for us to get around to eating them all! Have a lovely weekend xxx
