Date cake with butterscotch sauce

I have been making this date cake with butterscotch sauce for as long as I can remember! And it’s the perfect treat for Ramadan 🌙

For the recipe: (Make sure you use super soft dates and if you feel the mix is too chunky then mix for less than a minute in a smoothie mixer)

1 1/4 cups(210 grams) seeded soft dates

1 1/4 cups(310 ml) boiling water

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

60 grams butter, chopped

3/4 cup(150 grams) firmly packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1 cup self-raising flour

For the butterscotch sauce:

1 cup(200 grams) brown sugar

300 ml cream

200 grams butter

Combine dates and water in pan and bring to boil, then remove from heat. Stir in the soda for 5 minutes. Blend with butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs and flour. Transfer into another 9” pan lined up with butter(you can use the Lurpak spray) and baking paper. If you’re using a silicon pan like I did just use butter spray

For the butterscotch sauce:

Combine ingredients in medium pan. Stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved and butter melted
