Sticky date cake or pudding, like they call it, is essentially a British dessert consisting of a moist date cake and served with toffee or caramel sauce and some ice-cream!
So I have made it as far as D, shall I do the happy dance yet or hold on till I at least reach the half way line. Considering my history with blogging challenges, I think I will hold on to it for a while, I can’t afford to dance till I reach the half way and may be even then I will push it to 3/4 mark. Anyway, this Date cake is proof enough that I am serious about this 🙂
However, I am surely celebrating D with a yummylicious dessert. Sticky date cake or pudding like they call it. Sticky date pudding is essentially a British dessert consisting of a moist date cake and served with toffee or caramel sauce and more often than not, a dollop of ice cream.
It is also very popular in Australian and has made appearance many times in THE God of all food shows aka Masterchef Australia, however if you read more Sticky Date pudding is believed to have origins in Canada, but in my mind it is British, a perfect candidate for English tea parties along with that pound cake, scones and sandwiches.
I also find this so easy to make, stays super moist for at least two days and freezes very well for up to three months. It is often a dessert for my winter parties when warm cake and sauce feels brilliant after the meal. I make it a day ahead and store it in an air tight container, just microwave for 30 seconds before serving. Pour the sauce on top and voila you are done.
And oh, before the recipe, another awesome dessert where you can use dates is the Milk Dates Peda! They taste so unique and yum!
