what you need
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped dates
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • Butterscotch Sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups thickened cream
make it
Grease bread pan. Combine dates and water in saucepan, bring to boil. Remove from heat, add baking soda; let stand for 5 minutes. Blend date mixture until smooth. Beat butter and sugar in small bowl with electric mixer until combined; beat in eggs one at a time; beat until combined. Gently whisk in sifted flour, then the date mixture. Pour mixture into greased pan.

Bake in 350 degrees F oven about 50 minutes. Stand cake 10 minutes before turning onto wire rack. Serve cake with warm butterscotch sauce.

Butterscotch Sauce: Combine all ingredients in pan. Stir over heat, without boiling, until sugar is dissolved. Simmer, stirring, 5 minutes. Do not microwave the sauce alone. You can microwave the cake topped with sauce, though.
