      I just made this and goodness me, it's absolutely delicious! Moist and soft, the only negative I have about it is that the taste of date isn't too prominent so next time (oh and there's definitely gonna be a next time), I shall add more dates. Thank you so much :)

      A lovely moist cake. Not all that chocolatey, but the dates give it a rich flavor. My kids helped me make it... and gobble it up!

      THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU! My Mom used to make this, and never wrote down the recipe. She pasted away without writing down a lot of her recipes. I have been looking all over the internet for this cake. It is FANTASTIC! She usually served it with real whipped cream on top.
