      This is a different take on one of our favorite desserts, Sticky Toffee Pudding. I love the addition of chopped pecans, it adds a lovely texture to the whole thing. I used a package of chopped dates that I always have on hand in the house, they sell it here specifically for baking purposes. We had this warm with vanilla ice cream on the side. Thanks for posting, I'm going to make this often!
