HOW TO MAKE STICKY DATE CAKE!

Hello lovelies thought I’d share this sticky date cake recipe with you. I make this cake a lot! Mostly because it’s my hubby’s favourite. So much so, that if I say I’ve baked a cake and it isn’t this one, he has been known to turn his nose up and says he’s not really in a cake mood! It’s also a cake that keeps very well. It’s very sticky and moist, and you don’t have to eat all in one day if you don’t want to. As long as it’s kept in an air tight container, it tastes just as good over the next couple of days…not that it always lasts more than a day, if I make it when we have friends round.

This is a cake recipe that you can have as just a cake recipe or jazz it up with some toffee sauce and or ice cream and have it as dessert! The choice is yours.
I’ve made it loads of times, and it’s always good! I often get asked for the recipe, when people taste it. It’s very easy to make, dry ingredients and wet ingredients combined, mix and voilà! Commonly known as the melting method, one of the easiest baking methods. I’ve doubled the recipe to make it in this bundt tin. If I use the quantities that the recipe states, I use a loaf tin.

STICKY DATE CAKE
This sticky date bundt cake is a moist and dense cake. It’s so easy to make, just a case of mixing dry and wet ingredients together.

Ingredients

  • 250g pitted dates
  • 60g unsalted butter, roughly chopped
  • 60g golden caster sugar
  • 2tbs maple syrup
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 180g plain flour, sifted
  • 1tsp baking powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180.
  2. Grease a 25cm x 10cm loaf pan and line with baking paper.
  3. Place the dates and 1 cup (250ml) water in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
  4. Then decrease the heat to low and simmer for 3-4 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed and the dates are mushy. Mash to break up any big pieces.
  5. Add the butter, sugar and golden syrup.
  6. Stir until the butter has melted, then remove from the heat and stir the bicarbonate of soda into the hot mixture.
  7. Cool slightly, then stir in the egg.
  8. Fold in the flour and baking powder, then spread the batter into the pan and bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean (cover loosely with foil if browning too quickly).
