Sticky Toffee Pudding – a very simple recipe that everyone loves

I have been making this sticky toffee pudding for years. It is my family’s favourite and whenever I had a crowd of young for supper this was the pud they asked for. It is also so simple to make which suits me perfectly. The recipe came from a cookbook belonging to my mother and originally came from a Yorkshire couple – William and Nicky McCauley.

  1. Hi Annabel and Grace, I’m looking forward to making this yummy pud this evening. How far in advance can I prep it, or cook in advance and warm through when needed? Many thanks Mary

    • I made it last weekend a day in advance and put it in the fridge overnight – the picture is of the one from last weekend before it went in the oven. If you do this then bring it out and get it to room temperature before you pop it in the oven. I hope your family love it as much as mine do! It is wickedly delicious!! A
