Simply purée fresh dates with water at home, then use this naturally sweet and moistening date purée to make these yummy, chewy fruit and nut squares. A healthy, yummy baked treat just made to be enjoyed with coffee or a cuppa.
We have been making a similar recipe for over 40 years. However, our recipe is much more nutritionally friendly. - 13 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Omigosh. This cake is superb! I used fresh dates which were lovely and sticky when pureed, and the cake perfumed the house beautifully when baking. We had this warm with cream; a bit of caramel sauce (butter, brown sugar, cream) on the side would have gone well too. - 11 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very easy to make and turned out well too. Looks a little more appealing with powdered sugar sprinkled on top. - 29 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
