With the conflict of cold winter weather, one automatically longs to douse oneself in joy and partial of that is joy dishes such as soups and stews and abounding desserts or puddings as they call them over here in England.
One of the many preferred puddings over here has to be Sticky Toffee Pudding. Todd and we were so propitious to have outlayed multiform holidays up in Cumbria that is the home of Sticky Toffee Pudding. Nestled in the old-fashioned panorama of the Lake Districk is the Cartmel Village, the home of the strange gummy toffee pudding, or so they claim.
Sticky toffee pudding is a abounding cake that is wet with dates and lonesome in a lusciously gummy toffee salsa that soaks down in to it’s smashing brilliance and creates something utterly enchanting to eat.
The origins of gummy toffee pudding have been a bit mixed. It has been rumoured to have come from the Sharrow Bay Hotel in the Lake District and nonetheless others have claimed it comes from the Udny Arms Hotel in Aberdeenshire. Having traversed the byways and laneways of the Lake District myself, it is not hard to suppose how really cold and dour it competence great be in the winter months and how comforting a pudding such as this would be, and we can great hold it’s origins open from the Sharrow Bay on the banks of Lake Ullswater.
The really initial time we tasted Sticky Toffee Pudding was when we were up in cumbria on holiday, and let me discuss it we . . . we was bending at initial bite! We paid for one of the Cartmel Village Shops gummy toffee puddings at a use hire on the M6 and brought it back to the legal legal holiday cottage. That night we served it up after the tea , all hot and gummy and inhaling and exhaling splendidly of treacle and brown sugar, all slathered with lashings of stand in cream . . . we was in sky . . . so most so that, in fact, we had Todd pushing me back to that emporium each integrate of days the total rest of the time we were there, only so that we could treat myself to a little more!!
Upon returning home we only had to poke out a recipe for it myself and we hold we have managed to find one that is similarly as great if not improved than the Cartmel one we had on holidays. Homemade is regularly improved right? Right!!
Just wait for til we get stranded in to this tasty pudding . . . you’ll be bending too. I’d interest my hold up on it . . .
