    yaya78006's Note:

    My mother used to call this inch cake since it is so rich, you could only eat a inch at a time! Moist, rich, luscious! Perfect to take to a casual affair since it is left in the dish it is cooked in. I have never had anybody say they didn't love it. This recipe came from the Austin, TX Junior League Cookbook. Enjoy!

      Was intrigued with the name of this cake, as it includes 2 ingredients that I enjoy, & after seeing that it would freeze well, I went for the whole thing! I did use about half Medjool dates & half Deglet Noor dates! When finished I kept 1/3 of the cake out & the rest was put into 4-serving packages for freezing! When all was said & done, THIS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST TASTING CAKES I'VE EVER HAD! Most definitely a keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in the current Pick A Chef]
