Sticky Toffee Cake

I have been absolutely sucked in to trying new recipes lately and staring at food blogs {smitten kitchen} all day long. Suddenly I have this urge to make everything, just to see if I like it. Now, I have to take into consideration the fact that I'm still dieting, so I eat smaller portions, or slightly modified versions of the deliciousness. Luckily, the myfitnesspal app has a wonderful feature where you can create your own recipes and it tells you how many calories {along with sugars, fats, sodium etc..} are in each serving!

Yesterday I made sticky toffee cake from Everyday with Rachel Ray. It's made with dates, which I had never eaten before. It was pretty caloric {serves 10, 353 calories each}, but oh so stinking delicious! It also teaches you how to make your own caramel! Holy smokes it was good! Here are some photos!

So now I have too much cake in my house, someone come over for dessert?
