Hi dear friends, for past one week I didn't cook anything for my blog, as am posting these recipes from my drafts... I wish to post the dark dates cake for long time but I forgot to share. As many of my friends and regular readers knows that am poor eater as I already said in my posts. So nowadays my mind insisted to have healthy items, and now hearing the voice of my mind and obey its order..;) I tasted the dates once or twice in my lifetime, because I don’t like. Here is I have prepared cake with dates, which is very delicious and no one can say it contains dates in it.  

This is my first try with dates and bakes...;) Am happy that my experiment was came out very well and the taste was tremendous. Everyone at my home enjoyed, and I had few pieces for the photographs... ;) The color of the cake will be very dark brown, because, I used light brown sugar, dark dates with coco powder, so it will be in good dark... Am sure you too love the combo of chocolate and dates. Do try once and let me know your feed backs.
