Dates are tend to be a royal fruit with rich in sweetness and a great source of energy without doubts! Its versatile when doing desserts with it . I love it in baking and last i tried it with caramel basic butter cake. I hope you will enjoy


Flour 1 1/2 cups
Eggs 2
Butter 130 gm
Brown sugar 1 cup
Milk 2/3 milk
Honey 1 tbsp
Baking powder 1 tsp
Baking soda 1/2 tsp
Dates 300gms (seeded and soaked in warm water for about 20 minutes & drained)


Preheat oven at 180 degrees C.

Beat butter with sugar until creamy. Add eggs one by one and beat well until combined. Sift dry ingredients together and add in the butter mixture gradually in two lots alternate with milk. Fold nicely and lightly with a wooden spoon. Add honey and fold. Finally add drained and chopped dates covered with a little flour so that they don't stick to the bottom oof your pan.

Pour cake mixture into prepared cake pan, 21cm round one.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until your skewer comes out clean.

You can frost the cake with caramel butter icing or fresh whipped cream if you like!
