Pipe Dream #342: To Go Ham – Sticky Toffee Pudding


The first time I ever had a sticky toffee pudding was in a small gypsy pub on a dreary day in Northern England. The sky was dim and the rain was sheeting when my friend and I set out on our little Saturday adventure. As we trekked along, we grabbed at our hoods to keep the wind from whipping them off, while the muddy road became more and more difficult to navigate. By the time, we arrived in town, we were more than ready for a comforting meal. We had chicken soup and this pudding (which is British for cake).


There are dates in it, cry me a river of tears. It is the best, most moist cake, with a caramel flavor and EXTRA SAUCE. It brings me loads of nostalgic feelings and homey associations, and there is a reason it is a classic British staple cake. If it’s raining where you are, go ham on this one, lads.


Went ham. Going ham,


P.S. Went ham is my new favorite phrase, and I can’t even apologize.
