Served warm with a buttery caramel sauce and a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, sticky toffee pudding is like receiving a hug in cake form that you just can’t get enough of. The dates make this classic British dessert wonderfully rich and nutty. So much so that it literally melts in the mouth.
