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
