A little time consuming but by far the best recipe my entire family begs for. I double it, slice and freeze it. The cardamom is wonderful and I use Mejdool dates far better than the standard ones. Love this.

Delicious and easy-to-make and best of all it doesn't taste like a good-for-you cake -- a perfect snack cake for the holiday season when dates are abundant! Thanks for sharing this keeper!
