“Ok, this dessert is to die for, no kidding. Moist and sweet, full of sticky dates and lots of caramel flavour. The toffee sauce is it’s crowning glory. DO please make it, but if you want you can just serve it warm with some cold vanilla ice cream melting over the top. (Make the sauce though….you won’t be sorry you did!)”
