This recipe has truly changed my life. It comes from my friend Jan Van Stralen who grew up on a farm in south-west Ontario in a family of Dutch heritage. The latter explains the name of this trusty dish: Borenkol Stumpot.
In a column about famous and infamous recipe mistakes that I wrote for the Toronto Star in 2008, I confessed to not being happy with the Sticky Toffee Pudding in my latest book: Dish. Here is the amazing version I came up with after that confession, with help from top Toronto pastry chef and good friend Joanne Yolles. It is definitely a winner.
