I made this to use up a surplus of fresh dates. It was very good. My husband who doesn't like traditional cakes at all almost ate the whole thing! I told everyone about it and now i have to make a bunch more. Thanks! I put some leftover maple frosting glaze on some of it to make it a touch sweeter. It was delicious too!
