One of my favourite cake which i loved and cherished as a kid was the Date Cake and i would eat all the crumps in a day. Now my kids also love this cake and they are a hit with their friends and I feel so happy and rewarded when all the little folks come and say a big thanks for the cake sent to school.

Well here goes the recipe.
