What do Sticky Toffee Pudding & the Cliffs of Moher have in common? Everything!
On the last day of our Irish Adventure, we visited the Cliffs of Moher. Needing nourishment along the way, our fearless tour guide, Paul, took us to a seafood restaurant called Vaughan’s Anchor Inn.
Typing that restaurant’s name sends a tremor through my body. At Vaughan’s, I experienced the best crab claws of the trip. I do not make this statement lightly. After eating at six different restaurants, Vaughan’s delivered the most tender, perfectly cooked crab claws. The crab claws were served in a butter sauce so delicious I was nabbing brown bread from other people’s plates to sop it up. Needless to say, I forgot about my beachbody goals and went for the taste bud splash.
Not content with just a meal, we each sampled an item from the dessert menu. I will write more on this at a later date. For today, I must share with you the Sticky Toffee Pudding. I typically do not like pudding or bread-like desserts covered in sauce.
At Vaughan’s? Delicious. Superb. Lick your Plate good! (I will not show the photo of a family member literally licking her plate). My sister-in-law and father-in-law liked this dessert so much that they came back to the states and tried to recreate it.
After much trialing, the best Sticky Toffee Pudding recipe they found turned out to be from THE FOOD NETWORK.
For dessert over the 4th of July weekend, they served our family the Sticky Toffee Pudding. It met our new Irish Standard and then some. Just be careful making the toffee. Watch it constantly in the final stages, as it can go from “perfect” to “burned sticky mess” stage very quickly.
Enjoy this recipe for Sticky Toffee Pudding and photos of The Cliffs of Moher, which we walked while very well nourished.
