A sticky toffee pudding inspired coffee cake drizzled in a highly addictive toffee sauce. It will become your new favourite morning treat- who says you cant have desert for breakfast?
Perfect for fancy brunches, bridal or baby showers. The texture is unbelievably moist, dense, and light all at the same time. Without the added toffee sauce the cake is actually fairly healthy. By no means is it actually healthy we just mean it has a reduced amount of sugar due to the fact that the dates add natural sweetness which is why the amount of sugar in this cake is reduced compared to a regular coffee cake.
When making the date mixture, it should start to thicken and begin to soften. By adding baking soda, it will start to foam and helps break down the fibres so you can skip the step of puréeing. We recommend using a large enough saucepan as the date mixture will double in volume when the baking soda is added.
What is cake without some sort of delicious topping. This cake is nothing without its glorious and decadent sauce dripping down the edges. Truly a life altering duo in our opinion. On that note, the toffee sauce can be made up to a week in advance and warmed in the microwave or stove top.
