This Sticky Date Cake with cognac toffee is absolutely out of this world. It tastes just as delicious as it looks. I am such a sucker for a dense, yet gooey dessert – and this is just that. After the toffee soaks into the cake you are left with such a great texture of cake and caramel flavors.
I originally tried this cake at a restaurant in Chicago called Armitage Alehouse. One thing about me is that if I love something at a restaurant, you best believe I’m asking the server or chef on how to make it. Restaurants is one of the main places where I get a lot of inspiration for my recipes. I’ll either make them my own, or try to create an exact dupe – like this one.
This is a fairly easy recipe that tastes like it took HOURS to make. It is rich, savory, and sweet and has the most decadent texture. Let me know if you make this cake! Hope you love it.
