My date of preference is the Medjool, so loving your cake was easy! I made only one small addition to the whole thing in adding just enough cinnamon to the icing so we could taste it! Will definitely make this one again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday recipe tag]

I gave this a 5 rating for the texture, the great way it turned out after baking and (for me) the originality. Being a spice lover I took the tip from Cookiedog and added cinnamon, ground ginger and some anise seeds. Splenda replaced the sugar and I used whole wheat couscous. I've had people in and out of the house all day long, some of whom I know well enough to offer cake to, and it's already mostly gone. Thanks so much Boomie for something out of the ordinary and yummy.

I adored this and served it warm with cream. I made it like a slice and served it in squares. The couscous sort of gives the same texture you find in tapioca pudding. It really was a fabulous dessert. I only used 3 eggs as that was all I had in the fridge. Made for the Couscous Challenge ZWT6.

I love to eat cakes like this for breakfast and I enjoyed the texture the couscous gave to this cake. Mr. Picky Eater wasn't quite sure what to make of it. We both thought it would benefit from a bit of spice such as cinnamon or ginger. It baked up nice and high with an even top using the springform pan! Made by an Unruly Under the Influence, ( I bet this would be just as good with a cocktail as it would with a cup of coffee!) ZWT 6

What a great tasting cake! I love dates, so this was right up my alley! The couscous addition was a little strange, but certainly worked for me. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Boomette. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6.
