1 cucharadita de bicarbonato de soda
2 tazas de harina sin polvos
1 cucharadita de polvos de hornear
1 pizca de sal
3/4 taza de mantequilla a temperatura ambiente
1 taza azúcar rubia
3/4 taza azúcar granulada
3 huevos
2 cucharadita de extracto de vainilla

Salsa toffee
1/2 cucharadita extracto de vainilla
2 cucharadas syrup de maíz (corn syrup)
1/4 taza de azúcar rubia
1/2 taza de crema espesa (batida)
4 cucharadas de mantequilla

Preparación



 En una olla mediana hervir los dátiles en trozos con el agua (fuego medio),cuando hierva por unos minutos, cortar el fuego y agregar el jengibre y el bicarbonato, revolver y dejar enfriar por un rato.

Precalentar el horno a 180°c. Enmantequillar y enharinar un molde para cake si es posible como el de la foto (este es de silicona)  
En un bowl grande mezclar la harina cernida, polvos de hornear y una pizca de sal.
Reservar.
En otro bol batir a mano o con máquina, 3/4 taza de mantequilla a temperatura ambiente, 1 taza de azúcar rubia y 3/4 taza de azúcar granulada, agregar los huevos de a uno, a incorporar a la mezcla.
Agregar dos cucharaditas de esencia de vainilla.
De a poco ir incorporando la mezcla de dátiles al batido e ir mezclando bien.
Debe quedar una mezcla más bien espesa.
Vaciar al molde ya preparado y llevar a horno por unos 50 minutos hasta 1 hora o hasta que al pinchar con un palito o brocheta salga seco.
Para bañar con el caramelo (una vez frio el cake) poner un papel mantequilla debajo y bañar con el caramelo.

Dejar que el caramelo se seque un poco. Después transferir a un plato donde se servirá o presentará.
Se puede adornar con hojas de muérdago o menta y con cerezas
o berries. 

Salsa de toffe

En una ollita combinar el corn syrup (jarabe de maíz espeso)
(en los supermercados)más 4 cucharadas de mantequilla (no margarina)más 1/4 taza de azúcar rubia.
Cocinar unos 3 minutos revolviendo siempre.
Luego agregar la crema y la vainilla,y una pizca de sal revolver nuevamente, luego dejar reposar unos 5 minutos antes de bañar el cake.
