This is my variation of my first taste ever of sticky toffee pudding, enjoyed aboard the Royal Scotsman and prepared by chef Alan Mathieson.  OMG, it was soooo good!  It is a rich, rich dessert, so a little goes a long way.  I’ve made this many times for my family at Christmas and am pleased to say I am posting it here now because my daughter has requested it to prepare herself for her first Thanksgiving dinner as a mother.  She was supposed to provide me a photo of her creation to use here, but I guess she was so entranced with the deliciousness of it that she forgot!

1 cup water
          Bring to a boil and leave to cool slightly.
1 tsp. baking soda
          Add.  Put aside and let cool hour or more.

          In another bowl, cream until soft.
