The Origins of Sticky Goodness

Sticky toffee pudding, often affectionately called STP, is a British dessert consisting of a moist sponge cake made with finely chopped dates, covered in a rich toffee sauce and often served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream or custard. Its origins are somewhat disputed, but this much-loved sweet treat has been warming bellies and hearts since the 20th century.
