I’m going to come clean – I’m not a fan of English desserts. Let’s talk about sticky toffee pudding, shall we? First of all, it’s not English. It’s actually Canadian. The guy who supposedly invented it actually “borrowed” the recipe from a lady who got it off her Canadian friend. So much for its English heritage then.
STP is glorious. It’s in my desserts hall of fame, right up there with Ben’s mum’s Pavlovas, proper tiramisu, my own plum and chocolate tart (recipe here), and crème caramel.
