We’re bringing our last blog post of 2019 to you early, to cover those holiday baking needs. (And because we’re going on Christmas break!) Each year we pick some sort of theme for the blog, and 2019 saw a lot of traditional baking recipes, inspired by the Great British Bakeoff tv show. To properly wrap up the year, we are finishing with one of my favorite desserts: Sticky Toffee Pudding. This is not a pudding in the American sense. It’s a buttery, date-heavy cake with a toffee sauce poured over it while still hot to soak up all that deliciousness; and then served with extra sauce and a little whipped cream. It is heavenly!
I get my love of cookies from my sweet mother but my love of ice cream sandwiches comes straight from my dad. My dad is pretty basic when it comes to his love of ice cream. Simple vanilla with a few salted peanuts or cashews and maybe a drizzle of caramel sauce. No chocolate for him! I remember when I was younger, a special outing for us was a trip to the local ice cream shop for a blended ice cream treat. Overwhelmed by all of the flavor choices my first visit, I took my dad’s advice and went with the toffee candy bar. I was hooked and it has been my ice cream flavor weakness ever since!
