This recipe takes the tried and true date loaf and jazzes it up with a hot brown sugar sauce. Delicious!
Simply amazing cake - so moist- subbed half cup of water for brandy - wow just like my Xmas pudding flavour with that mild hint of brandy - as I had hard dates I just soaked in the brandy for an hour before cooking on stove - such an easy recipe too 😀 - 29 Jun 2017
This a delicious, MOIST date nut cake. I never thought I would find one! The only change I made was I substituted 1/2 C. of the water for 1/2 C. brandy. This made it awesome! Yummmmmmmy! Thank you for submitting this recipe. Susan in NC - 17 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Wow! Soooo good! Will now be a repeat treat for me. I subbed 1/2 the flour with whole wheat flour and cut out 1/4 cup of the sugar. I think this recipe is a bit mislabeled as a "cake" because it's the texture of a sweet bread. Also, watch the bake time; mine was a bit dry and I only baked it for 40 minutes. - 31 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
