Great tasty cake...I did end up adding more dates then specified, just cos I like them. Two thumbs up.

I made this with my mom. We only had 1 cup of dates, no self rising flour so we added 1 tsp of baking powder. It came out great. Mom loved so much it was gone in 2 days!

I have just taken this out of the oven, and had a taste! It is excellent and is very easy to make. It has a delightful nutty flavour, and I will be making it again for sure. Thank you for your submission.
