Sticky Toffee Pudding

     This is one of my favorite recipes.  The first time I made it was for this past Christmas and I recently remade yesterday it for my MOPs Tea & Testimony meeting.  Everyone loved it!  I found it on Martha Stewart's website.  It's so easy and delish, you have to try it!!



 Cake Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for pan
  • 8 ounces pitted dates, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Toffee Sauce

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour an 8-inch round cake pan; set aside.




In a small bowl, combine dates and 1/2 cup boiling water;
 set aside to soften, at least 10 minutes.

In a medium bowl, whisk or sift together flour, baking powder, and salt to combine; set aside.


With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.


Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  
Add in date mixture, flour mixture, and vanilla; mix just until moistened.



Spread batter in prepared pan.  Bake until toothpick inserted in 
center of cake come out clean, 55-65 minutes.  Meanwhile, prepare toffee sauce.



Remove cake from oven; cool in pan 5 minutes. To ensure it will come 
out easily later, carefully invert hot cake then return it, right side up, to pan.


Toffe Sauce Ingredients

  • 16 tablespoons unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Directions
In a medium saucepan, combine butter, heavy cream, light-brown sugar, and salt. 
Heat over low, stirring, until sugar has dissolved, about 2 minutes. 
Simmer mixture over medium heat until reduced to about 2 1/2 cups, 8 to 12 minutes. 
If desired, reheat sauce over low before serving.


Using a toothpick, poke holes all over cake. Pour about 1 cup warm 
sauce over cake; let absorb at least 20 minutes.


After the 20 minutes dig in! It tastes so good nice and warm!  
Enjoy!
