Lovely! A real delight. I've been craving pumpkin and maple things (fall feels like it's just around the corner). This satisfied the pumpkin craving quite nicely. Cut the recipe in half and it didn't seem to hurt a thing; I love the fact that these are so small, so each cake is just 1 WW point. The dates made a lovely addition. This one's a keeper! Thanks for posting it.
