how to cheat sticky toffee pudding.

I'm away from home and don't have access to my cookery books. I seem to remember in Delia's How To Cheat cook book a very quick recipe for sticky toffee pudding that included using ready made McVities ginger cake.
Can anyone out there help me? I'm pretty desperate as I would like to do it tomorrow night for my hosts !!


How to Cheat

Hello, sorry this isn't very helpful but I've had a look through the How to Cheat book and can't find a Sticky Toffee Pudding recipe.

I cut this out of a magazine & it's easy! Slice a Jamaica ginger cake & layer it in a small ovenproof dish. Pour over 1x300g pack sea salted caramel sauce (I used a jar from M&S) & scatter with 3 tbsp chopped pecans. Bake for 20 mins at 180C, fan 160C, gas 4. Serve with ice cream.
