I LOVE dessert. Period. I love that there are 2 ‘s’ in dessert. It reminds of me of grade school spelling – desert has one ‘s’ and dessert has two because you always want seconds on dessert. I can honesty tell you that I always want seconds on dessert.
Being a dessert lover, I’m naturally an ice cream lover. A few years ago, I had a sticky toffee pudding ice cream and was smitten. It was absolutely deslish! Picture it, vanilla ice cream with caramel streaks and chucks of sticky toffee pudding. For those of you who don’t know what sticky toffee pudding is, it’s a super moist, super delish cake from England. It’s made with dates – yes, I know that sounds weird, but trust me it’s so good- and is covered in a toffee sauce. After my first bite of that ice cream, I knew I had just tasted my dessert destiny. I had to make sticky toffee pudding.
In search of my dream dessert, I searched the internet for recipes. After hours, or 10 minutes, of searching I happened upon a blog with a recipe that looked fairly easy and promised outstanding results. I was expecting pretty good, but little did I know how good! That weekend I bought all the ingredients and whipped up my first sticky toffee pudding.
The cake was so good, my taste buds were happy, my tongue was happy and my teeth were even happy. So good, so delightful. I would post pictures, but the cake never lasts long enough for pictures. My family is as in love with it as I am. This dish is a craving you must try at least once!
