The Classic British Treat
She may live in a palace and rock a tiara, but Kate Middleton's preferred dessert is reported to be wonderfully, unexpectedly plain-looking: sticky toffee pudding.

It's sweet but not cloying, and serving the pudding alongside whipped cream or vanilla ice cream gives it the perfect balance between sweet and rich.
