This delicious dessert consists of a moist sponge cake, with finely chopped dates and is covered in a sticky toffee sauce! It is often served with vanilla ice cream or custard to compliment the sweet, sticky taste.

There are of course many, many more desserts that can be served during the Christmas season in the UK, these are just a few. Nowadays, a lot of traditional desserts are created differently using the old tradition, but adding (or taking) away ingredients.

Be careful not to accidentally spill syrup on your clothes though! It can be a little tricky to remove, but don’t worry! You can always leave it to a trusted laundry service to take the stain out!
