Sticky dates cake with hot toffee sauce recipe – easy baking recipes

  Happy new year to you all.

A sweet delicious post for the new year.

 There was a time when I just needed any excuse to bake a cake. But now there are many recipes of cakes which I have bookmarked and I have still not tried them. One was the fruit cake I posted for Christmas and then this dates cake- I had bookmarked them a couple of years ago. Whenever I bake, its usually chocolate because my kid is fond of chocolates cake.


    I managed to bake this one finally yesterday for the new years. The cake was simply delicious, just awesome. It tasted divine with toffee sauce. The cake is really easy to bake though it seems complicated involving a lot of steps. Try this cake. I am sure you will love it.
