A different kind of Christmas pudding

In my previous post, I promised to share this recipe for sticky toffee pudding with you. This was a yummie dessert and a perfect ending for our Christmas dinner. But no worries: this pudding will hit the spot every time, not just for Christmas 😉 The original recipe is by Nigella Lawson and I only made 1 slight adjustment: I about halved to amount of brown sugar. Still sweet enough for my taste! I am glad I didn’t use the whole amount, but maybe someone else is more daring?
