Omigosh. This cake is superb! I used fresh dates which were lovely and sticky when pureed, and the cake perfumed the house beautifully when baking. We had this warm with cream; a bit of caramel sauce (butter, brown sugar, cream) on the side would have gone well too.

We have been making a similar recipe for over 40 years. However, our recipe is much more nutritionally friendly.

Very easy to make and turned out well too. Looks a little more appealing with powdered sugar sprinkled on top.
