12 Days of Buffalo Christmas: 12th Day

On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

•    Twelve sticky toffee puddings from The Black Sheep

Just about every person I talked to about this list nominated Ellen Gedra's sticky toffee pudding, a contender for the best dish in all of Western New York. It’s a bubbling-hot, English style sticky cake made with toffee, topped with frothy butter, whipped cream, and sprinkled with more buttery stick-to-your-teeth toffee.

This dish is a dentist's nightmare and an epicurean's delight. With its sweet warmth and rich butter, I haven’t found a better way to end a cold, winter's night meal with a loved one.

So with a full belly, your lover, and you
just fixed that old carol with foods fresh and new.
We've tossed out the fowl, the bird, and the pear
and replaced them with puddings and cookies and cheer.
Now with her eyes all aglow, she'll be quite a sight.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
