This is a great moist date cake that is made even better by the addition of chocolate. Works well for lunch boxes and picnics.
I love this cake - the only adjustment my family makes is the topping which is 1/4 c flour, 1/4 sugar 1 tbs cinnamon and 2 tbs butter softened - mis till crumbly then put on top of cake then add chips and walnuts! Great for a party and if you feel adventurous you can make it in a bundt pan and just reverse the order of the layer! - 21 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is a wonderful cake. Try it reheated and topped with icecream for a real treat. I also add 2 Tbls. of dark rum to the liquid and dates, but allow the cake to sit a couple of days to ripen. Thanks. - 11 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
this cake has great textures and with the dates and nuts is fairly good for you, too. The topping is crunchy, the middle is smooth and the bottom for mine was slightly chewy. It looks nice, too, without alot of work. - 13 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
