ANOTHER DAY another date
I dreamt of dates all night. It's probably because I bought date syrup yesterday and it really got me rooting around for recipes using it. I found, what today has turned out to be, a delicious cake recipe on a blog called divinetaste, which is well worth taking a meander around. Mine came out softer I think, but fingers crossed it'll fly off the cake shelf tomorrow.
I made a few alterations to the divinetaste model, mostly obviously, that in the topping, instead of just using butter and sugar, i added the date syrup again. It was delicious and toffee like and got more and more sticky as it cooled. I highly recommend you give this cake a go.
