- Anonymous1 decade agoBest answer
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 packed cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper.
Combine the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and heavy cream in a medium heavy saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Continue to cook until the mixture reaches 300 degrees F, or the hard-crack stage (a drop of boiling syrup immersed in cold water crackles).
Remove from the heat, add the vanilla, and stir. Pour onto the prepared sheet and let cool completely.
Crack the toffee into large shards with a rolling pin. Place the pieces in a large deep pot and break into smaller pieces with the end of the rolling pin. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.Source(s): By: emeril lagasse http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,1...

12 ounces dates, pitted and roughly chopped
2 1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons baking soda
3 1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
8 tablespoons (1 stick) softened, unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Butterscotch sauce, recipe follows
2 1/4 cups light brown sugar
7 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup half-and-half
1 teaspoon brandy
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup cold heavy cream, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13 by 9-inch baking pan with parchment or waxed paper.
Combine the dates and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and gradually stir in the baking soda (it will foam up), and set aside.
In a bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. In the bowl of a mixer, cream the butter until fluffy. Add the sugar to the butter, and cream until fluffy. Without stopping the mixer, add 2 of the eggs and mix until combined. Add the remaining 2 eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. Add about 1/3 of the flour mixture and 1/3 of the dates and mix until combined. Repeat until all the flour mixture and the dates are incorporated into the batter. Pour into the baking pan and bake about 40 minutes, until firm and set in the center. Let cool in the pan. When cool, turn out of the pan onto a baking sheet and peel off the parchment paper. The recipe can be made through this step up to 2 days in advance.
Butterscotch Sauce: Combine the brown sugar, butter, half-and-half, and brandy in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil 3 minutes, until combined. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
When ready to serve pudding, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Pour the sauce evenly over the top of the cake. Bake until the sauce is bubbly and cake is heated through, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, whip the heavy cream into soft peaks with the mixer. Cut the cake into squares and serve with whipped cream.
Hope you like it!Source(s): food network

If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here https://biturl.im/aU9T0
The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true

1 pound butter
1 pound sugar
Melt butter. Add sugar and cook until the mixture turns to light brown. It will turn yellow first. Be patient. When it gets to the hard crack stage [300° to 310°], pour into a buttered pan.
