How to make Sticky Toffee Loaf Cake

To make the Sponge:

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 180 degrees C or 160 degrees F.

Step 2: Use parchment paper to line a 2lb loaf tin.

Step 3: Remove the stones from the Medjool dates before chopping them up. Place in a bowl with Bicarbonate of Soda and boiling water. Let it rest for about 10 minutes. Then, puree in a blender or food processor until smooth.

Step 4: Place the unsalted butter and dark brown sugar in a bowl. Mix using a hand mixer until light and fluffy.

Step 5: Add in the eggs, a piece at a time, beating every after each addition.

Step 6: Stir in the flour, Treacle, vanilla, and the pureed date mixture until smooth.

Step 7: Transfer the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the preheated oven for about 45 to 50 minutes.

Step 8: Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes in the tin before placing on a wire rack to completely cool.

To make the Sauce:

Step 1: In a pan, add all the sauce ingredients. Heating on low until the butter melts and the ingredients are mixed.

Step 2: Let the mixture boil for a minute, then, remove from the heat and set aside to cool completely. Occasionally stirring so the skin will not set.

To make the Buttercream:

Step 1: In a bowl, add the unsalted butter and mix with a hand mixer until supple.

Step 2: Beat in the icing sugar until completely mixed before adding in the cooled sticky toffee sauce. Mix again until incorporated.

To Decorate:

Step 1: Fill a piping bag with the buttercream filling and decorate the cake. Drizzle the cake with some more Sticky Toffee Sauce and sprinkle with your desired sprinkles.

Step 2: Serve and enjoy!


Store the cake in the fridge for up to 3 to 4 days. Although the sponge may dry a bit it’ll still be delicious.

Make a homemade Toffee Sauce or buy instead.
