A nice cake for a coffee & cake round on Sunday. Beautifully decorated with dates and salted caramel sauce.
Preheat oven to 180ºC top & bottom heat.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.
Add the butter. Now mix everything until it becomes a mass.
Add sour cream and vanilla extract and blend again for a few seconds.
Now add the eggs one by one until everything is one mass.
Now fold in the sliced and pitted dates and place in a greased and floured cake pan (e.g. Gugelhupfform) and bake for 40-50 min. Pick with a toothpick into the cake and check if it is baked.
Allow the cake to cool completely before removing it from the pan.
For the sauce, simply heat the sugar, salt and butter in a saucepan until everything is mixed.
Remove the sauce from the heat and fold in the vanilla extract and sour cream.
Let the sauce cool a little and pour it over the cake. You can garnish the cake with a handful of chopped dates and coarse sea salt.
