Ingredients

Sticky toffee sauce:
4 cups heavy cream
2 cups packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter

Sticky toffee pudding:
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/4 cups (8 ounces) dates, pitted and chopped
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Sliced strawberries for serving (optional)


Preparation

1. Make sauce: In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 5-7 minutes, or until sauce has reduced to about 3 1/2 cups. Set aside. To make ahead, cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours, then reheat over low heat.

2. Make pudding: Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°F. Generously grease a 12-cup bundt pan or twelve 6-ounce bundt pan muffin cups.

3. In a medium saucepan, combine water, dates, and baking soda. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then remove from heat and set aside to cool completely. Combine flour and baking
powder in a medium bowl. Stir well to blend. Set aside.

4. In an electric mixer, using paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar together for 3-4 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then vanilla extract, and half of flour mixture. Beat in all of date mixture, then remaining flour, until well blended. Pour or spoon into prepared pan(s) and bake about 45 minutes for bundt pan, 12 minutes for bundt pan muffins cups, or until cake is golden brown. Pour half of toffee sauce over cake(s) and continue baking for about 15 minutes, or until skewer inserted into center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Invert onto plate(s).

5. To serve, cut large cake into slices and drizzle toffee sauce over each slice. If serving individual cakes, put one in center of a plate and spoon some sauce over. Garnish with sliced strawberries, if desired.

I would like to take a moment of your time to tell you what an amazing employee I have found Ann  to be. She was so helpful to me during all facets of the gift ordering process. I have never dealt with your company before and it was with fear and trepidation that I emailed for help. I need'nt have worried because Ann was there. She took care of everything and made my holiday giving a pleasure. I have since ordered chocolates for family members and Ann was right there to be of assistance. Because of her I have made you guys my chocolatier of choice and record. You have a star here!  - Meg from Ontario, CA
