Toffee Cake

This delicious cake is currently my daughters favourite for morning tea.  It's a great versatile cake that can be made as one big cake or made into mini loaf size or muffins.  Finish it off with a caramel icing, simple buttercream or to minimise the extra calories, a light dust of icing sugar. It can also become a decadent dessert with a caramel sauce and icecream.  The cake itself has no sugar in it, not saying its healthy mind you but if you are trying to keep your sugar intake to a minimum it is a great option.  When I brought the cake into work I asked the boys to decipher what was in the cake, they had no idea it was loaded with dates and you would never know there was no sugar in it. Enjoy. Eb x
