Method

DATE CAKE​​
Preheat oven to 180C/165 fan/gas mark 4.
1
Grease a cake tin (7cm deep, 22cm diameter base) and line the base with baking paper.
2
Soak dates and bicarbonate of soda in boiling water. Leave it uncovered for 20 minutes or until dates are tender.
3
Using an electric mixer, beat butter, brown sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Using a large spoon, stir in date mixture and flour. Mix until well combined.
4
Spoon the mixture into the cake tin. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Rest for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack.
TOFFEE SAUCE
1
Stir the butter, cream and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, until the sugar is dissolved. Let it boil and cook for 8–10 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly.
2
Serve the sauce hot with the date cake warm or at room temperature. Serves 6-8.
