Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding

In Cartmel they have been making delicious sticky puddings to a traditional recipe for almost 25 years.  It started  in the back kitchen of the Village Shop a good 20 years ago. Word soon got out and it seemed like everyone wanted some. But however busy they are, it’s still handmade, and there’s still nothing to match it.
