Rich & Moist Date Cake

I have done so many ways of doing date cakes. This is one of them. This can be used as a cake it self or even as a dessert.  dates are are less expensive and rich in lots of nutrients.  You can always serve this for dessert after pouring a bit of caramel sauce or even with cream.

When I have dates I do a big batch of them and freeze in individual snack bags. Even you can serve them with a coffee for an unexpected visitor. When buying dates its best to use fresh ones. Dried dates should be bright in colour.

Cooking dates makes it so soft and mushy to a texture which is ideal  for a cake.  It makes the cake  very soft and moist too. All you need to do is to mix everything in the same pot  and pour it to a tray. Hope you will enjoy!
