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.



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.



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...
