Sticky Toffee Cake

Read all about our delicious Sticky Toffee Pudding inspired cake

Sticky Toffee Pudding, is a popular steam dessert, using dates, rich toffee sauce, and is usually accompanied with custard, cream, or ice cream. It is thought that the original Sticky Toffee Pudding was produced by Francis Coulson at Sharrow Bay Country House Hotel in the Lake District in the 1970s. The recipe was so secret that the original recipe is considered a culinary legend, and members of staff at Sharrow Bay signed a secrecy agreement not to reveal the recipe. The warming comfort that the Sticky Toffee Pudding provides, is perfect for the harsh cold weather the Lake District experiences.

It is still one of the nation’s most popular desserts and we thought it would also make a great cake. Our customers simply love our sticky toffee sponge cake, with flavour from the dates and toffee creating a marvelous sweet treat to tickle the taste buds!

Our Sticky Toffee Pudding cake is handmade using date puree, toffee buttercream, and is actually inspired by the popular British dessert, to create a wonderfully delicious Sticky Toffee Pudding cake.

The Sticky Toffee Pudding as a dessert originated in England and is a spongy date cake topped with rich toffee sauce. The dessert has a very soft texture and sauce that goes through the cake! For our own special Sticky Toffee Cake, we have taken all the best bits from the dessert to make it into a yummy cake version, held together with a warming toffee buttercream.
