    About this recipe: When you taste these slices you can hardly believe that these have no sugar added. The sweetness is derived from the dates and the figs which are also full of fibre and also a very good source of iron and calcium. To enhance the flavour of these slices, you can sprinkle 2 tablespoons of brandy or rum when you remove the cake from the oven.
