I love dates. This is dead sweet. When I make it again I thing I will cut the sugar in half and increase the number of dates.
I made this for a date-loving friend and he loved it. It is very rich, but delicous, especailly with freshly whipped cream.
The people who tried this when I made it yesterday said that it was actually cake-like in consistency, but gave it four stars just the same.
