I had sticky toffee pudding the first time I went to England and it quickly became on of my favorite desserts. This recipe is a bit more advanced. The toffee sauce and the creme anglaise take a lot of attention while preparing them, but in the end it is all worth it. This dish is extremely rich and is great for a special occasion. Each part of this dessert can be made in advance and warmed up when ready to serve. The recipe for the sticky toffee pudding is below. I found the recipe for the vanilla creme anglaise in the book Modern Sauces, a cook book which I highly recommend picking up. Enjoy this one, after making it once it has instantly become a go to dish.
