A Date to Remember

Earlier this year, my friend Amy made me a delicious date cake for my birthday. For those of you thinking, "gross", just knock that off right now. It was quite possibly the best cake I've ever had, and nearly single-handedly brought down my then-diet. The dates are pureed and create a moist, richly-flavored cake, and the toffee sauce can just be eaten straight from the pan, as far as I'm concerned. I made it again last month, although I don't think it was as good as Amy's original.

Okay, I'm just being honest...my tastes as not as refined as you and Amy. "Date cake" doesn't appeal to me, but DANG that toffee glaze does! I'll take one bowl of that please! :)
