Date Cake

Date Cake created by stormylee

This cake is delicious, moist and a cinch to make. I love the way the dates melt into the chocolatey cake, giving it incomparable flavour and texture.

    Rating 3 stars, maybe because of myself overbaking this cake. Because of that it was dry. Maybe I will try again!

    Evelyn, Evelyn, Evelyn!! What have you done? I'm hooked! Lovely moist cake! I used 6 mediumish eggs and no chocolate. I will bake it at 300F next time as it was overdone on the top. I may also stir the walnuts into the batter for a variation. Oh, a good thing about this cake is that it isn't too sweet. Thanks for posting this.
