Date Cake

This past holiday season I received Ina Garten's new cookbook "Barefoot Contessa Foolproof." Now if you didn't already know, I am obsessed with Ina. A few weeks ago I actually had a dream that I got to go grocery shopping with her. Yeah, I know, weird. I told you I was obsessed! I've been all kinds of different recipes from her book. Everything is amazing (as always), but this dessert is spectacular.
It is resembles a sticky toffee pudding, which is one of my (and Richard's) favorite desserts. The best part about the whole thing is after the cake is done, you poke tiny holes all over it and pour a sauce of butter, sugar, cream, and bourbon until the cake soaks it all up and is moist and sticky. How can that be bad?
