Toffee Date Pudding - A Summer Dessert

I know my readers must be thinking that I have a sweet tooth. But that is true. I just love to have desserts after a sumptuous dinner. This is almost a craving. If someone invites me for dinner then a sweet dish is a must. I just love chilled sweets in summers. First of all they help in digesting and then make the meal complete. This is a recipe which is easy to make although takes a little time. Go gooey with this dessert. In summers you can serve it chilled and in winters you can serve it hot.
