About this recipe: A wonderfully light and delicious date cake that's easy to make. It's my family's favourite cake recipe. You'll become addicted to it, as long as you love dates.
If the dates you are using are dry, chop them and soak them in the milk with 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda for an hour, other wise move to the next step.
This recipe was easy to follow and the end result was delicious. I used date paste and it was a lot quicker and easier to use than pitted dates. I split the mixture into two small foil containers, one of which I put in the freezer for a later date. This cake was moist and my friends found it very moorish. I look forward to making it again as I'm sure the cake in the freezer won't be in there for too long! - 25 Jun 2012
