Description

My husband is Scottish and when we were first married we used to buy from Mark’s & Spencer this delicious dessert. He took me back home to Aberdeen where I received a copy of the recipe for it. Apperantly, the Udny Arms (in Aberdeenshire, Scotland) has THE best sticky toffee pudding. It is also very easy to make!
