The cake was extremely temperamental. It seemed like there was too much liquid to be absorbed, so instead of using the whole 1 3/4 cups of coffee, only used one. It was still very liquidy. Instead of baking it for an hour, I soon realized the cakes were browning way too fast, and had to shorten the time to 40 minutes, at 150 C.
The taste was similar to the tradiotional Jewish honey-cake. Since I don't like that cake, I didn't like this cake either. I presume date-lovers will love it, since I was very moist and sweet, but overall- I wouldn't make it again.
