A spongy pudding topped with a buttery toffee sauce? There is literally nothing not to love about the classic sticky toffee pudding dessert — especially when the recipe comes from celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. The tasty treat is both delicious and easy to make. Think of it as a cakey banana pudding, but slightly better and not exactly diet-friendly. The ingredients list is simple, it won't take up too much time, and at the end, you get to indulge in something that'll make you feel like royalty. Sticky toffee pudding clearly deserves a spot at your next dinner party, and this a recipe worth saving. Bon appétit!
