I’m sure you’ve heard of Sticky Toffee Pudding, or Toffee Pudding Cakes at Christmas?  Usually these classic Christmas desserts are served in individual servings in little ramekin dishes.  But I find ramekins a bit fussy…I’m more of a get-all-the-batter-in-one-pan kind of gal.  I just find it a lot easier, which is why I made this Sticky Date Pudding Bundt Cake.  One pan, one cake and easy to serve!

This Date Bundt Cake is made with 1 1/3 cups of chopped dates which are simmered in water, cooled, then added to the cake batter…so just imagine how tender and moist the cake is!  Seriously so good.
