this looks like a recipe a friend gave me so I will give it a try. I think I have actually substituted raisins for 1/2 of dates and chocolate chips for other half... sometimes I also just throw in a bit of oats or bran if a recipe seems to liquidy...

This recipe didn't work. The batter's exterior turned hard but the interior was mush. The glaze also made this dish sickeningly sweet.
