Sticky Toffee Pudding search

mtirado Mar 2, 2011 12:41 PM

My fiance and I are getting married next August and we would like to have stick toffee pudding as our "cake". My fiance's family is british so we wanted to include something british yet delicious to the menu.

We are looking for a local(ish) supplier or a local bakery that makes it, we are located in berkeley so were willing to drive up to 60 miles in any direction that will get us the pudding! If you know of something further let us know anyways!

Thanks in advance for the tips!

    Hate to admit this, but the only place I've seen it is somewhere I can not really recommend, Claim Jumper's.

    Hopefully someone else has some ideas. It would probably be a british or australian restaurant/bakery.

      Best wishes and congratulations, M!

      I've had sticky toffee pudding at Martins West in downtown Redwood City. It's a gastropub in the British style with a pastry chef who is talented. Worth a call to see if MW will do it for you. Oh, i should mention that it's a rather refined version, maybe you should try it first to see if it works for you.

        Had a version at Chop Bar in Oakland this last weekend. It's a new dessert to me so you might audition it to ensure it meets your yum factor.

          It doesn't seem like a bakery kind of thing to me, it needs to be served hot.

            Bakesale Betty in Oakland has had it in the past, though they don't seem to have it regularly (and I've never tried their version). You could call and ask if you're looking for a large order, though---they might be willing to make it for you.

              Costco sells it ready to bake. Probably not as fancy as you need, though...

                Like another poster said, it is something which should be served hot - perhaps consider a really gorgeous trifle for the Brits? Perfect time of year for gorgeous fruits and a good bakery could make one fancy one for you guys to "cut" while making individual trifle for the guests.
