Toffee Squares

The Toffee Squares Recipe are yummy! For extra stickiness, the squares are topped with a caramel toffee sauce. You can buy this in a jar, but it’s more fun to make your own. These squares taste delicious served warm with ice cream drizzled with caramel sauce.

Toffee Squares Recipe

1 cup (150 g) pitted soft dates (roughly chopped)
4 fl oz (125 ml) cold water
1 tsp baking soda
5 oz (150 g) butter (softened)
1 cup (150 g) dark brown sugar
2 medium eggs (beaten)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1½ cups (175 g) self-rising flour

Toffee topping:
6 tbsp caramel toffee sauce (Dulce de Leche)


Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly grease an 11” x 7” (28 cm x 18 cm) pan and line the bottom with parchment paper to prevent the cake from sticking.

Place the dates in a pan and add the water. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat and add the baking soda—the mixture will fizz! Leave to one side to cool slightly.

Place the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer or whisk, beat them together until they are light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.

Using a metal spoon, fold in the flour, then the date mixture. Pour the mixture into the pan. Place the pan in the center of the oven and bake for 25–30 minutes, or until risen.

Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a cooling rack. When cold, cut it into 24 squares, then spread your caramel sauce over the top with a palette knife.

Notes and Tips:
To make your own caramel sauce, bring 3 oz (75 g) butter, ¾ cup (150 g) light brown sugar, and 1⁄2 cup (150 ml) table cream to a boil and cook for 3 minutes, until thickened. Allow to cool.
