Sticky Medjool Date Bundt Cake

15/11/2018 Pair up this mouthwatering cake with a perfect dessert wine this evening.

Sweet tooth, dessert lovers rejoice. Removing my dietitian hat for just 5 minutes to share with you all possibly the most devilishly decadent mouthful you’re ever going to enjoy. I oftentimes daydream of this mouthwatering Medjool date Bundt cake generously coated in a warm, sticky, salted-caramel glaze (not to be applied sparingly). This European inspired toffee pound cake is spiked with a cheeky lashing of French cognac welcoming bursting hints of nutty toasted vanilla, orange and warm baking spice. No good caramelized pudding is complete without a whisker of dessert wine to wind down the evening. Source out an alluring style such as Italian Vin Santo, a Noble Rot sweetened Sauternes or Tokaji, a Muscat-based fortified or a spot of rich, brooding vintage Port or Pedro Ximénez.
