This recipe comes to us from Ellen Clarke, one of our merchandising product managers. She got the recipe from her grandmother, Mary Morrisroe. You can replace the sugar with honey if desired. The bread is delicious served with butter and jam.
Sticky toffee pudding is essentially a rich, moist cake permeated with a thick caramel-like sauce (with extra for serving). Most recipes say to soak the dates in hot water, but here we use coffee. It gives the pudding a surprising depth of flavor.
