Sticky Toffee Date Cake Recipe


A must-try, sticky toffee cake recipe made with the all-natural, healthy sweetener, DATES! The Deglet Noor dates work best with this recipe. Deglets are sweet, semi-dry with a firm texture, and maintain their consistency in bread, cookie, and cake recipes.


•   35 Dried Dates      257 ml Boiling Water      1 t Bicarbonate of Soda   •   175 g Soft Light Brown Sugar   

   150 g Butter (Room Temperature)      3 Eggs (Beaten)      175 g Ounces Self Raising Flour



1. Pour the boiling water over three-quarters of the dates

2. Leave to soak for 30 minutes until soft

3. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius

4. Blend together the butter, sugar and the soaked dates (including the soaking water)

5. Add the eggs to the mixture and stir in the self-raising flour and bicarbonate of soda

6. Finally, stir in the remaining unsoaked dates

7. Pour into a square lined cake tin

8. Bake for 40 minutes until firm to the touch

9. Allow to cool, cut into squares, and serve!
