I made a sticky toffee pudding a few years back but the recipe included molasses , an ingredient that i bought for the recipe but had to throw it in the bin later as i didn’t use it . So this time i was looking for a recipe without molasses when i found a blog where the person was dining in Gordon ramsay’s restaurant and asked the chef for the recipe for their sticky toffee pudding as this dessert is one of gordon’s favorites and feature on the menu of his restaurants . I uploaded jamie oliver’s brownie recipe 2 weeks ago and today it’s time to share another great chef’s recipe . Hope you guys enjoy it .
