Sticky toffee pudding


For the sponge cake

  • In a bowl add the water, the coffee, and stir to dissolve the coffee. Add the dates, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 12 hours to soak.
  • Preheat the oven to 170ο C (340ο F) set to fan.
  • Remove the dates from the refrigerator, beat them with an immersion blender until mashed, and set them aside.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the eggs, the sugar, and beat them with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 3-4 minutes, until fluffy.
  • Lower the mixer’s speed and add the butter in batches.
  • In a bowl add the flour, the baking soda, and mix. Transfer them to the mixer along with salt and the date mixture. Beat for 1 minute until the ingredients are homogenized.
  • Transfer the mixture to a buttered and floured 28 cm cake pan and bake it for 40-50 minutes.
  • Remove and let it cool.

For the toffee sauce

  • In a saucepan add the heavy cream, vanilla pod, and transfer over medium heat to heat it up well.
  • Place a frying pan over medium-low heat.
  • Add 1/5 of the sugar to the pan and let it melt. Add one more batch of the sugar and stir with a silicone spatula. Once it melts, add one more batch of sugar and follow the same process until it becomes a caramel.
  • Transfer the hot heavy cream into the pan with the caramel, add salt, and stir with a silicone spatula over low heat, for 3-4 minutes, until the ingredients are homogenized and you get a thick caramel.
  • When you want to serve, microwave a piece of the sponge cake at 800 Watt for 1 minute, covered with plastic wrap.
