Sticky toffee pudding

Right, I’ve decided my blog should stay┬ácompletely random. In fact, it should be even more random than it already is. So, here’s a recipe for sticky toffee pudding. Just for the craic. You can keep left over sauce in the fridge and reheat some of it in the microwave whenever you want some. It’s delicious.
