This recipe for gingerbread pudding with sticky toffee sauce is a great twist on a classic British dessert. Ginger is a traditional Christmas flavour and this recipe uses preserved and ground. You can use fresh grated ginger instead of the ground in the sponge, if you like.
Ginger bread - easy peasy. Dump everything in the processor and blitz, chill for 15 mins and then dough is ready. Dough handles well - good for kids. Also, it's not too sweet, so the resulting biccies can handle a little icing nicely.
