Fall is officially in full swing here in Utah! I've celebrated by buying a new scarf and boots, and I might've put all of my Halloween decorations out too... I'll admit, I've been in denial about the cold weather hitting, I love the warm weather a little too much (pool party anyone?). But ready or not, fall's here to stay!
I don't know about you, but as much as I want to be, I'm really not ready to embrace the season in its entirety just yet. So I'm just going to put it out there...today's recipe doesn't include any pumpkin. Shocker right?! I love pumpkin just as much as the next person, and I'm dying to post some pumpkin recipes. But I think you'll LOVE this dessert.
Sticky toffee pudding is a traditional English treat. I never had the chance to try it when I was in England, but I did have it at the Three Broomsticks in Harry Potter World. So good! Like seriously, this is the kind of dessert that's hard to just stop at one serving...unless you have good self-control (um yeah, about that). I may or may not be guilty of eating two...or three pieces today (oops). What can I say? I'm a bit of a sucker for the caramel. No shame, right?
Figs, brown sugar and butter make up the base of this recipe. A pretty great combination in my opinion, especially for those of you with a sweet tooth! The best part about sticky toffee pudding is that it is so easy to make. You basically just pour the batter in a muffin tin, pop in the oven and and drench in caramel sauce. Ok, now tell me you don't want to try this now! I recommend cuddling up with a blanket and a good book and a piece (or two) of this sticky toffee pudding.
Also, I tried Lindsey's (Pinch of Yum) awesome tutorial to make an attempt at a pouring shot. I guess it's not too bad for a first timer! If you don't follow her blog, you should. She posts some beautiful photos and delicious recipes!
