If you told me that sticky date cake would be one of my favorite cakes a few years back, I wouldn’t have believed you. Dates have never been my favorite fruit, I would eat the occasional date while fasting but didn’t particularly enjoy them. This cake made me see dates in a whole new light. Super moist, sweet and just slightly sticky… this cake is a dream.
If you know anything about dates, you know there are several kinds depending on when they have been picked. Any kind of date works in this recipe, but it’s particularly good for the super dry dates that aren’t as sweet or soft. I had a pack of them sitting around and decided to whip up this cake several months ago. I wasn’t expecting much, just a way to get rid of the dates because I wouldn’t be eating them. This cake is a game changer though!
