Sticky toffee pudding is a staple on the dessert menu at Australian cafes and restaurants. The funny thing is that i never noticed that you couldn’t get it in the US until i made a visit home to Sydney last year. I sat down in a restaurant and saw Sticky Toffee Pudding on the menu, and immediately realized that i hadn’t had any in three years.
I’m not sure, either, why the Aussie tablespoon is bigger, but i have to make an effort to remember that whenever i make any of the recipes from the Australian cookbooks i brought to the US with me. In some recipes it doesn’t make a huge difference, but in others it can be crucial.
Hey, kath, where in the Lakes District were you staying? I worked in a hotel in Ullswater for a year, and it’s still one of my favorite places.
