    How to make Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake

    Making the Cake:

    • Preheat the oven to 350°
    • Use a nonstick spray to coat a 10-inch round cake pan. Line with parchment paper to keep the cake safe from burns.
    • Add the dates to a saucepan and cover with water. Bring it to a boil.
    • Take the saucepan off the heat and add the baking soda. Whisk until it foams up and set aside to cool.
    • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl to remove any lumps. Set aside.
    • Beat the butter with a mixer while adding the granulated sugar, until it is fluffy and light. This will take about 2 minutes at medium speed.
    • Slowly add the eggs to prevent them from spraying everywhere. Add the vanilla essence as well.
    • Add the dry ingredients in batches to incorporate it properly using the mixer. Use a scraping spoon to fold the date mix into the batter and to aerate it before pouring in the prepared pan.
    • Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes. Check if it’s baked all the way through using a toothpick (if it comes out clean, it means the cake is evenly cooked).
    • Let the cake cool on the side.

    For the toffee sauce:

    • While the cake is cooling, begin preparation for the sauce.
    • Add the brown sugar, heavy cream and butter to a medium saucepan.
    • Bring it to a boil over a medium heat and keep whisking until all the sugar has dissolved.
    • Let the mix simmer on low heat for around 2 minutes but keep whisking.
    • Add the brandy, vanilla, and salt after taking the mixture off the heat.
    • Keep warm until ready to serve.

    Completing the Dessert:

    • Turn the cake onto a rack and peel the parchment off.
    • Return the cake top-side down to the pan. Be careful not to break it.
    • Poke 15 to 20 holes in the cake with a skewer and pour half the toffee sauce over the cake.
    • Let it soak for 5 minutes until the sauce is properly absorbed.
    • Invert onto a serving platter and poke another 15 holes into the cake. Pour the rest of the toffee sauce.

    To serve:

    Serve warm and fresh cream or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
