Ginger, Date and Ginger Candied Pecan Pudding with Ginger Toffee Sauce
This is a classic Australian and British dessert. Warm and fragrant with a great texture. The hidden crunch of Ginger Candied Pecans and soft, sweet warmth of Ginger Bites balance perfectly with the thick, rich toffee sauce. A scoop of vanilla ice cream finishes this wonderful end to a meal.
