Baking for the Olympics - Warm Sticky Toffee Pudding

Warm Sticky Toffee Pudding
You may not have realized you should be planning an Olympics themed party, but if you had tasted this warm sticky toffee pudding, you would be making up any excuse to bake it again.  It was one of those moments where people take a bite and close their eyes in ecstasy.  For a silly little traditional English pudding!

Hey, the English aren't messing around.  I'd had dates and golden syrup in my pantry since Christmas, since I had intended on making sticky toffee pudding for the holidays and just never did.  This was so quick to pull together!  I used David Lebovitz's recipe, and left out the ginger (mainly because I forgot it), and since I baked it the night before, just didn't make the sauce until the next day. 

Don't ask about calories.  Turn on that opening ceremony and have another bite of sticky! toffee! pudding!  Hey, it has fruit in it, that's healthy right?

David - My friend in Australia begs me for pictures of burritos. Maybe you should move back and open a chain of Mexican restaurants! :)
