We love this sticky toffee pudding recipe as it lovely and moist, great for impressing some guests and can be enjoyed as an afternoon treat or as a dessert for a special occasion. The ginger is perfect if you're feeling festive but can be left out if it's not quite to your taste. Serve this gorgeous pud by Mary Berry up with plenty of fresh cream or rich custard to make it a proper treat. And the best bit? This is just as good warmed through the next day - delicious!
