♥♥ Sticky Date Cake for the Binny's ♥♥

Jason, Jon and Judah...adorabable boys and yes they are triplets....are they manageable??Hmmm?? Well?? they are boys, and they are three?? sometimes they go on a spree of wanting to cry, or sometimes they just decide to turn the house upside down. It had been a pending visit to Binny's and Sheena'a place. And we did over the long eid-weekend. For a family favorite, I took them home -a moi baked chocolate cake and a sticky date cake.....

Plain flour - 1 1/2cups
Butter - 1/2cup softened
Caster Sugar - 1 cup
Eggs - 3 beaten
Dates - 1 1/3cup pitted and chopped
Boiling water - 1 1/4cups
Ground Cinnamon - 1/2tsp
Baking soda - 1tsp
Baking powder - 1tbs
Brown sugar - 1/2cup
Butter - 4tbs
Cream - 3tbs

Place the dates in a bowl and cover them with the boiling water. Preheat the oven to 180C. Then grease a 9inch springform pan. Place the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs, then fold in the flour and cinnamon. Add the baking soda, to the dates and water, pour onto the creamed mixture. Stir until well mixed. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for an hour or until well risen, firm to touch.
To make the topping, place the sugar, butter and cream in a pan. Set the pan over low heat and stir until the sugar has all melted, then bring to a boil and let it simmer for 3minutes. Pour over cake and let it cool in the pan. Then transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
