To develop a sticky toffee pudding cake recipe with tolerable sweetness and a moist, tender crumb, we broke with tradition when choosing a sweetener, using brown sugar instead of treacle.

Serves 8

Laced with soft dates and richly flavored with brown sugar, sticky toffee pudding is an easy alternative to fancy cakes or pies. While sticky toffee pudding is traditionally served with crème anglaise (see related recipe), vanilla ice cream also serves as a suitable foil to its sweetness. This pudding is best eaten the same day, but it may be stored for up to 2 days and reheated in the microwave before serving.
