Sticky Toffee Pudding
My Dad loved hot desserts and sticky toffee pudding was one he would often choose. If you read my blog last week, you will know that my Dad has recently passed away. This recipe is one I’ve tweaked slightly from the last sticky toffee pudding I made my Dad but one I’m sure you’ll agree that everyone will love.
Most hot puddings remind me of my Dad, like this apple crumble slice or creamy rice pudding , even these baked apples which remind me of time spent picking and storing apples with Dad. In this freezing cold weather which has suddenly descended on the UK, these hot puddings are a comfort in more ways than one.
If you want a stickier or stodgier pudding, just make a thinner runnier syrup and make sure you pour it over the puddings as they come out of the oven. If you like a lighter pudding then follow the recipe as it is and go easy on the sauce.
My boys also love sticky toffee pudding, so hopefully this recipe will be one which not only reflects this difficult time, but also creates happy memories of the times we all shared together.
I’m taking this Sticky Toffee Pudding over to Fiesta Friday where Angie is hosting the party on her own this weekend! Please pop over and have a look around… you could also volunteer to co-host as it’s great fun and new people are always welcome! 🙂
We’ve spent the past dozen days reminiscing, sharing stories, looking at photos and re-watching family video clips. There is still disbelief that this wonderful man left us suddenly without notice, but also relief that he didn’t suffer more than necessary. I guess with time it will become easier, less painful, without so many constant reminders, but for now he is in our thoughts every minute. Have you ever lost someone close to you that you loved? How do you manage without them in your life? Have you learnt any ways to deal with the loss and fill the emptiness they left behind? If you could take a moment to share your thoughts in the comments below to help others that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
