If you’re looking for THE perfect Christmas Day dessert, this cake is it. It’s the perfect ending to a delicious holiday dinner.
I’m sure you’ve heard of Sticky Toffee Pudding, or Toffee Pudding Cakes at Christmas? Usually these classic Christmas desserts are served in individual servings in little ramekin dishes. But I find ramekins a bit fussy…I’m more of a get-all-the-batter-in-one-pan kind of gal. I just find it a lot easier, which is why I made this Sticky Date Pudding Cake. One pan, one cake and easy to serve!
This Date Bundt Cake is made with 1 1/3 cups of chopped dates which are simmered in water, cooled, then added to the cake batter…so just imagine how tender and moist the cake is! Seriously so good.
But wait, it gets better. You drizzle slices of the cake with homemade toffee sauce. YES. And if you’re feeling really naughty, add a dollop of whipped cream.
The result? A rich and delicious holiday dessert. This is the kind of dessert Christmas food dreams are made of.
Sticky Date Pudding Bundt Cake with Toffee Sauce Recipe Tips:
- You can make this cake a day ahead of when you want to serve it. Just make sure to cover it well in saran wrap or a cake pan, so it stays nice and moist.
- This cake freezes well. Wrap the cake well in plastic then freeze. Take it out of the freezer at least 5 hours before you want to serve it.
- Sometimes right before I serve this cake I like to warm it up a bit…I put it on an oven safe plate and gently cover it in tin foil then put it into a 200 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes.
- You can make the toffee sauce ahead of time as well. Just heat it gently on the stove right before you want to serve it. Keep the leftovers to drizzle over ice cream!
This is the ultimate Christmas dessert! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.Print
