About this recipe: This cake is simple enough to eat with a cuppa, yet good enough to serve for a special occasion. It's one of my family's favourites.

This cake is yummy. Watch carefully after 40 minutes so it doesn't burn. The children don't care for it, but that's OK, that much more for me! - 18 Jul 2008
This was so easy to make. I had no choc chips but chopped up good cooking chocolate instead, kept the biggest chunks for the top. I also added a splash (or two) of amaretto to the water for the dates. It made a scrumptious, chewy, moist, huge cake which keeps extremely well. I think you've guessed I will be making it again. I think I'll line the base of the tin next time. - 07 Feb 2014
