About three weeks ago we had a special family Sunday meal at our house for my Dad and step-mum. After some gammon which was the smallest joint ever and had to be padded out with pigs in blankets and lots of veg, I had to think of a pudding that everyone would like.
When it’s cold, dark and miserable outside I love nothing more than Sticky Toffee Pudding. It’s simple to make yet tastes gorgeous and most people I know love eating it. I wanted to try out the Scrumptious Sticky Toffee Cake in The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook as the photo in the book looked absolutely mouthwatering. The recipe was created by Jane Edgar who is a member of the Pudsey and West Leeds Clandestine Cake Club. It also came with a separate toffee sauce which would work really well to cater for everyone’s tastes. My step mum can’t eat cream which is in the toffee sauce so this was perfect for her. She could eat the cake without the sauce and have custard if she wanted to instead.
The Scrumptious Sticky Toffee Cake really lived up to it’s name. It was delicious and everyone enjoyed their piece of cake. We also had some Kelly’s Clotted Cream Ice cream to serve with it which was perfect. There was even some left over for my hubby to eat after his tea the night after.
Definitely one I will bake again and again as it’s perfect for a Sunday lunch or a dinner party and I found it easy to bake.
