Foodie Friday: Sticky Toffee Pudding at The Four Marys
Meet sticky toffee pudding.
One word: decadent
Two words: moist cake
Three words: drenched in toffee
Four words: slathered in heavy cream
I know it doesn’t exactly look like much, but the sticky toffee pudding came highly recommended from friends who’d been to the pub before. Don’t let the word “pudding” discourage you–it’s actually a traditionally British cakey concoction that’s rich and dense like what we call a fruitcake Stateside. The moistness is derived from the dates in the batter as well as from the process of steaming the cake during the baking process.
Sweet and creamy and oh-so-good, I can’t wait to have this delicacy again. While I don’t anticipate going back to Scotland any time in the immediate future, this recipe will have to tide me over until I do.
