Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake

I have four words for you Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake you need to try this! To some this cake brings back childhood memories of when they would go to their grandparents house to eat dinner and dessert was anticipated by all. For me this was a cake I had for dessert one night, after dinner with my husband for date night. At first I was reluctant to try it because I am a creature of habit. However after much thought I took the plunge and took a bite, I was left speechless! its was warm, moist and literally melted in my mouth. If you know me, when it comes to food I am always looking for ways to recreate them to make them my own and that is what I did with the Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake i’ve added a secret touch to this cake to make it even more delicious than I could ever imagine.

What is even more intriguing is the fact that it is made with Dates. Who knew these wonderfully delicious nutrient packed fruits could bring such happiness to ones palate. I wanted to share my recipe with you in hopes that you will take a chance and make this cake too. Once you do you will see just how good it is.

    This looks so good! I’ve never had toffee pudding cake before, but I love toffee, so I’m sure I would love this. The texture looks so moist and dense, and a whole cup of Kahlua? Oh yes please.
