    Lady in love :)'s Note:

    This is an easy home made cake with a delicious crunchy topping on a super moist cake! It is not super sweet but rather you taste the cocoa. People tend to put to much of the toppings on, big mistake stick to the recipe amounts! Dates are some times hard to find, so I order my chopped dates on line in 8oz pks. Dromedary are my favorite, but Sun Maid , or Dole are good too.Enjoy!

      Have been making this cake for years and feel it is a recipe that is often overlooked. It is one of our favorites. Only difference I make is to use half butter because we don't care for a shortening taste. Agree with your comments re too much topping. Highly recommend this cake for any occasions. Great warm with some good vanilla ice cream.
