A wonderful date cake, served with a warm lemon sauce. The secret ingredient of the cake is mayonnaise - you won't believe how good it is until you try it.
I have made this same exact recipe for years but I bake mine in a loaf pan. I also do not use any sauce on mine. I think it is great without it. - 12 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
this is really soft and light. i couldnt bring myself to eat the sauce though, it looked and smelled like a pan of melted butter and really put me off. the cake by itself was great though. - 24 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
The best Date nut cake we have ever made. Moist and delicious we added one 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and doubled the diced Medjool dates for a rich and satisfying taste treat. Thank you... - 19 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
