Finishing the sticky toffee pudding -- 30 minutes

DIVIDE the batter over the oven dish and BAKE for about half an hour. Meanwhile create the toffee sauce by simply combining the butter, sugar and cream in a small saucepan.

HEAT on medium-high heat until it has thickened a bit. Make sure to keep on stirring. CHECK the pudding with a wooden skewer, if it comes out clean it's done.

POKE holes in the cake and pour the hot sauce over the hot cake. Let it soak for about 10 minutes before serving, enjoy!
