Sticky toffee pudding is essentially a rich, moist cake permeated with a thick caramel-like sauce (with extra for serving). Most recipes say to soak the dates in hot water, but here we use coffee. It gives the pudding a surprising depth of flavor.
This spicy apple pudding topped with glistening caramelized apples is best made in a two-quart, lidded metal pudding mold. Coat the mold with caramel before you add the caramelized apples and dense batter.
