STICKY TOFFEE AND DATE PUDDING RECIPE
This famous Sticky Toffee and Date Pudding recipe is a favourite from The Pudding Club at Three Ways House Hotel.
The Pudding Club was created by the hotel in 1985 to prevent the demise of the Great British Pudding and they regularly host Pudding Club evenings.
The Sticky Toffee Pudding is considered a British classic by culinary experts and was first seen here in the 1970's, however its origins may have come from further away in Canada.
