Sticky Date Pudding
This sticky date pudding is what dreams are made of! It is so moist and full of date flavor. The cake is subtly sweet despite being drizzled with a silky smooth butterscotch sauce. The cake also known as sticky toffee pudding itself has minimal sugar and is sweetened mainly from the date’s natural sweetness. The homemade butterscotch sauce gives it a luscious and extra moist texture, while the nuts offer a needed crunch. It is just a heavenly bite of food.
The Main ingredients in Sticky Date Pudding:
Dates! Lots of dates; Medjool to be specific. When I think dates, I automatically think of Ramadan and with it upon us; this is the perfect cake for the occasion. Imagine this as the centerpiece dessert that I promise everyone will enjoy. Serve with the homemade butterscotch sauce and some vanilla or coffee ice cream for the complete dessert experience that everyone will enjoy.
Now, would you believe me if I say that this cake is easy to make? You can have it done in just an hour’s time with simple ingredients and instructions. I used Natural Delights Whole Medjool dates for these as they are meaty, add the perfect amount of sweetness, and fresh. Not only that, but they are free of any preservatives, pesticides, and easy to find in most local supermarkets. Check them out next time you are grocery shopping!
What is Sticky Date Pudding?
Sticky Date Pudding is a moist sponge cake consisting of dates covered in a toffee sauce and sometimes served with vanilla ice cream. It is a decadent luscious dessert that is quite addicting.
Traditional sticky date pudding which is an Australian classic dessert, does not include nuts on top, but I thought it would add a great textural factor. It sure did! I can’t imagine it without the nuts which by the way, walnuts or pecans would be ideal to complement this cake. This cake lasts for days and the butterscotch sauce can be saved in a jar in the fridge. I use homemade butterscotch for other desserts like ice cream sundaes!
This is truly the best sticky date pudding cake! Just check out the reviews below- it is a winner! I hope you give it a try soon!

Sticky Date Pudding
- 10 oz Natural Delights Medjool Dates (No pits, or stems), chopped about 15 dates
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 cup Boiling Water
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar light or dark
- 6 tbsp Unsalted Butter, softened
- 2 Eggs
- 1 tsp Vanilla Flavor
- 1 1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
- 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
- 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 cup Walnuts or Pecans, chopped as topping
- 1 stick Unsalted Butter
- 1 cup Brown sugar
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1/4 tsp Table salt
- Grab a bowl and add the chopped dates to it. Sprinkle with the baking soda and add the boiling water to the dates. Set this aside for 15 min. Then, grab a potato masher and mash the dates with the water until it resembles mush.
- Next, in a bowl or kitchenaid with a paddle attachment; add the butter and sugar. Cream the two together either with an electric beater or the kitchenaid with the paddle attachment.
- Add the eggs and vanilla to this and mix it together.
- Then, add the flour, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, and baking powder. Mix again.
- Add in the date mixture a little at a time to the batter and mix everything together into a nice cake batter.
- Grease an 8inch round baking pan and place parchment paper into it as well to avoid the cake sticking.
- Pour the cake batter and spread evenly. Top with the nuts all over the surface area. Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes until baked through. Depending what size pan you use, baking time can vary.
- In the meantime, make the butterscotch sauce by first melting the butter then adding the sugar to the butter. Lastly, add the cream, salt, vanilla. Stir together and let this come to a boil for about 4 minutes stirring every now and then. Let this cool and it will thicken as it cools.
- Once the cake comes out of the oven, with a skewer; poke small holes into the top of the cake. Drizzle some butterscotch sauce all over the top and let it soak into the cake.
- Allow cake to cool then slice into the cake. Drizzle each slice with more butterscotch and a scoop of ice cream! Enjoy!
The picture just screams “make me!” I didnt have all the ingredients but couldn’t wait so i made it anyway just substituting brown sugar with white cause that is what i had at the time. Still turned out so good and the caramel syrup is what makes the cake for me. I made it right before ramadan and its such a nice intro to the holy month. Thank you Haifa. Your website is fantastic !
I am thrilled you enjoyed it, Rema!
Such an amazing treat! The recipe was easy to follow and I found the ingredients easily accessible. It is my favorite cake I’ve ever made at home. Not only was it so delicious, but it was so gorgeous . Everyone was a fan. Will definitely make again.
This recipe was amazing! It was my first time making butterscotch but it was so easy! The cake base was just so good too. I’ll be making this again next weekend, have to use up those Ramadan dates!
Happy to hear that!
Love everything about this cake. It has a perfectly balanced sweetness! Mashallah it will definitely be a new staple desert in my home!
Wow.. I made this on the first day of Ramadan and planning to make it again soon!
Love to hear that!
I jsut made the sticky date pudding cake it was AMAZINGGGGG!!! What a great recipe 😍😍🤩
Thank you so much, Sommer!
Awesome dish, must try!
The sticky date cake was absolutely delicious! Everyone loved it and said it tasted very similar to a cinnamon roll. Will definitely become a ramadan staple in my home from now on. Thank you!
I can agree with them! Does have some notes of that cinnamon roll flavor! Glad they liked it!
Everyone loved it!
Great to hear!
Can I make this the night before? Will it stay moist?
Sure thing, make the night before and keep covered room temperature. If more than one night, then you would need to refrigerate.
You won’t find a better recipe than this! No need to change a thing, it is perfection 🤤. The butterscotch sauce is out of this world, resist the urge to drink it all before it goes on the cake.
Thank you, Ayesha!
I made this tonight for a family gathering. The minute people tasted it they said WOW this is delicious. Needless to say, not a single piece was left over. Thank you for an incredible recipe.
That makes me so happy to hear, Noor!
love how organized and beautiful her recipes are..everything is perfection..Fufu is truly an amazzzing chef
You are so kind!
Just had to make this!!! Alhamdulillah came out just perfect. You are awesome 👏🏼 maashallah
So happy to hear that!
Salaam! I’m excited to make this this weekend. I was just wondering, what is the largest pan size I can use without compromising the quality of the cake? Would a 9×11 pan be too large? How about a Bundt pan? 9 inch pan?
So, 9 by 11 would be a little too big making the cake not as thick but it will still be tasty but may require less baking time! I would recommend either an 8 or 9-inch square or round baking pan. 9-inch bundt cake pan should be fine. I just don’t prefer using those when working with nuts as a topping as sometimes it sticks to the bundt pan.
I’m Making the date cake for an Azuma tonight Inshallah everyone enjoys it looks amazing can’t wait to try it!! Thank you for such a easy followed recipe!!!
I hope you enjoyed it, Linda!
Stick of butter is that 250grams
A stick of butter is 113 grams.
Hi.. The cake looks delicious.. could you clarify is it light brown sugar or dark brown sugar ? Or can I use sugar in the raw? thank you!
Thanks! Light brown sugar or Dark brown sugar would work!
This recipe is amazing!! Just perfect for Ramadan as well! It came out delicious and was super simple to make. Love how fufus recipes are simple and organized! I’ll definitely be making this again! 🙂
Thank you so much!
Nothing short of absolutely delicious…Alhamdulillah! That butterscotch just took it to another level. Kudos Heifa..your recipes are awesome..maashallah💖
Thanks so much!
The sticky date pudding is AMAZING!! I worried that I had overcooked it and it still turned out SOOO GOOD after adding the sauce. I left mine in the pan so that the sauce could seep in all around. 10/10, will definitely make again!
Thank you so much!
I tried this recipe and everyone looooved it! Thank you for sharing. By the way, I reduce the sugar because my dad can’t take anything too sweet. But other than that, it was AMAZING and easy to follow 💖💖💖
My absolute pleasure, so happy it was enjoyed!
Tastes like a dream! Gonna remake it for a family event this weekend so they can try it! 🥰

Thank you, Nour! This makes me happy to hear!
I could wait to make this cake, it looked amazing in the picture! I wasn’t too sure about how it would turn out when I make it (always mess things up the first time around)
This cake was so easy to make, with Haifas step by step instructions. Once I put it in the oven, I wished I wasn’t fasting, because the smell was phenomenal!
This is such an amazing cake, I topped it with the heavenly Butterscotch Sauce, and paired it with some coffee ice-cream. OMG I cant emphasize how great it tasted!
Mashala Haifa has the best recipes, they always work with me from the first try!
Such a very sweet review, Thank you so so much!
Loved the recipe, it is soo easy to follow and cake was moist and not too sweet. Thank you for sharing the recipe 🙏🙏😍
Mashallah, Heifa! This is amazing! It was the perfect way to end our meal. The sweetness from the dates is JUST RIGHT. I can’t wait to make it again for my family!!
Just the right amount of sweeteness! Glad it was enjoyed. Thanks for the kind review!
WOW! I’ve been following fufuinthekitchen on IG for a while and was craving this sticky date pudding cake that Fufu and others made. Very tasty, it was so moist and I was surprised how easy it was to make once I got down to it. 10/10 would make again on any occasion!
It is def a favorite! Glad you felt the same!
I tried this recipe and it came out so good. Thank you so much for sharing with us these recipes. I have tried a few of your recipes and everything has been so good. Thank you again ☺️☺️
Cake was gone within seconds! Everyone loved it!
Awesome, my pleasure!
This was a hit after Iftar!! Everyone loved it, the sweetness was perfect & the sauce made a great combination! One person asked if I put chocolate in it another asked if it was carrot cake. No one realized it’s dates!!! It was sooo soft and delicious, I also couldn’t believe how much it rose while baking! Def trust the process! Very delicious & a dessert I’d make to bring to iftar/dinner parties.
I have made this twice already and it’s SOOOOOOOO GOOD! It’s a must try and such a easy recipe to follow! Thanks fufu!
Awesome!!! Thanks for the lovely review!
This cake is out of this world delicious!! It was a hit!
It smells good, it looks good.
It’s so smooth and tasty and perfect for Ramadan because of the whole date theme. Husband loved it and the nuts add the perfect touch.
Thank you Fufu!!
I appreciate the lovely review, Lubna!
This cake was amazing! So good, I couldn’t stop sneaking bites of it all last night!
As usual, Heifa’s recipe was super easy to follow and came out just as instructed! Love it, can’t wait to make it again for the next family gathering!
This cake was amazing! I will definitely be making it again and again 🙂
Love to hear that!
Bismillah Mashallah Allahu Akbar!
This cake is AMAZZZZINGGG! Had it for iftar today and it was perfect. It was super moist, light, and not too sweet. It’s perfect with a nice cup of coffee after iftar.
I had never had a date cake before and was honestly worried about the cake not being moist and too sweet bcuz of the dates but yoooo I was proven wrong by FufuInTheKitchen.
I didn’t end up using all the butterscotch sauce for the cake but you put that based on personal preference.
Additionally I tried canned coconut milk (the one from Trader Joe’s) instead of heavy cream for the sauce and it still came out super good.
To whoever is reading this, don’t wait, just make the cake, trust me, you will thank Heifa later.
Thank youuu Heifa for this delicious recipe!
You are so so kind! Thanks for the lovely review! So happy to hear it was enjoyed!
Such a amazing treat! The recipe was so easy to follow and not only was it once of the most delicious cakes I’ve ever had , it just might be the most gorgeous one too. Thank you Heifa.
Thanks so much, Samira!
I made this and brought it with me for an iftar dinner that I was invited to and it was a hit! Everyone was eyeing the cake before it was even time to eat 🤣 it’s so so good Fufu this recipe is perfection! ❤️
I don’t even like dates but this cake was AMAZING!
So, those that know me know that I tweak all recipes, but this right here was perfect! I’d never made anything similair to this so i followed it to the tee and it was a huge hit. the only thing i changed was the quantity (keeping the same ratio) of the buttersotch sauce because i dont like when I have extra and from her notes it seemed like there would be, I cut everything by a 1/4 and it was just the right amount. Thank you so much for sharing,
Next up is the almond flour cake, yum!
I have looked everywhere to find this amazing cake recipe and this is by far the best. My husband and family loved it.
Haifa your recepies are so friendly and very easy to follow. Thank you!
Thank you so much! That makes me so happy.
Absolutely delicious! One of the best cakes I’ve eaten. Even the kiddos loved it. Thanks Heifa
That is awesome to hear!
This cake was absolutely delicious. My guests loved it! We had people fighting over the last slice! It’s that good. It’s also so easy to make I had all the ingredients in my pantry already. Definitely becoming a staple dessert in my family!
This cake is so good I made it twice within one week. Was worried that it’d be too sweet but it was perfect!
That is always a good thing!
Dear, can I use any other kind of date?
Yes, you can.
This cake was absolutely delicious! The whole family loved it and it was so easy to make. Thank you so much for sharing! I will definitely be making it again.
My absolute pleasure, Noor!
Really great recipe after iftar! My whole family loved i! It seems like it would be super sweet but it’s not at all
Right! Thank you!
Made it for an iftar and everyone enjoyed. This was my first time making a date cake and so thrilled as to how easy and delicious it was. Thank you!
Makes me so happy to hear, thanks Debra!
I’m not much of a baker but this Ramadan I saw Heifa make this cake and before I knew it I found myself in the kitchen giving it a try. And boy! It turned out to be the best thing I’ve ever baked!! So moist and just right. My husband couldn’t believe I had made the cake the Butterscotch sauce myself. Lol! It was. Pleasant surprise that didn’t last in the pan for long! ~thank you for sharing your recipe Heifa and turning me into a more confident baker. 😍
The sticky date pudding was omg so good! Loved how easy the recipe was too! Definite repeat
This cake was so easy to make! Me and my family loved it and finished it in one sitting Alhamdulillah. We loved how the sweetness mainly came from the dates
I am so happy to hear that!
This was so easy to make and came out perfect all 4 times that I’ve made it this Ramadan! I substituted brown sugar for coconut sugar and the heavy cream with coconut milk and it was delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Love those substitutions!!
This recipe is beyond AMAZING!!!! Everyone in the family devoured the cake! The recipe is perfect. 🙂
Thanks so much!
So so good!! It hits the spot and the flavors are perfect. Always craving this cake!
It is addicting, I know!
I made the sticky date pudding a couple of weeks ago and it was beyond delicious! The perfect combination and treat for Ramadan. I paired it with the Talenti Vanilla bean ice cream and it was perfect!
That sounds so good with the talenti!
Literally one of the best date cakes I’ve ever eaten! It filled our home with warmth and an amazing aroma and we all enjoyed eating the cake so much! Super easy to make as well
Super excited to make this recipe! If I were to double the recipe, what size pan would you recommend? Thanks in advance!
Sure! use a 9 by 13 or a 12 inch round or square pan. That would be my estimate.
I have made this cake three times now and every time it has been a crowd pleaser! It is absolutely delicious and sooo tasty! The recipe is very easy to follow. I don’t mind I will make this cake 100 times more because of how much my family and friends loved it ❤️. Thank you Heifa for another great and amazing recipe!
Thrilled to hear that!
So when I made this I had fasting brain so I didn’t read the part where it said to put the pecans on the top BEFORE u bake it. Nonetheless it still came out amazing and such a wonderful mix of flavors. Not too sweet! Also, I was surprised how easy it was to make! Loved it!
Glad it still worked out great and you enjoyed it!
Hi! I’m in the process of making this cake to bring as a gift to someone’s home tomorrow. Do you have any advice about whether I should put the sauce on now or wait until tomorrow, right before serving? I’m so excited and obviously bringing it over so I can have a piece too 🙂
The cake tasted amazing. I wanted to know does the cake have to be fully baked as in does the knife need to come out clean or does it have to be a little gooey. Mine was gooey.
Please let me know.
It should be fully baked through but also taste gooey from the sauce. If you used a cake pan smaller than an 8 or 9 inch then it would require longer to bake. Glad you enjoyed the taste.
I’m not really fond of dates but this cake is amazing!! If you have dates leftover from Ramadan, this is the only recipe you need to finish them off in an extremely tasty way. This recipe will definitely be a staple in my household!! Thank you loads Heifa 🙂 you are a genius for this recipe!!
A question: how long can I store the butterscotch sauce if I want to make it in advance?
So happy you loved it, Fathima!
So I can’t eat gluten or dairy so unfortunately couldn’t really try this cake. However, I made it for an Iftar give out and got rave reviews from everyone and had everyone asking me for the recipe. They said it was perfectly sweet and delicious and moist.
The only changes I made were to just blend the dates in my magic bullet and I cut the sugar in the butterscotch to 3/4 cup. I also only used half the butterscotch amount to pour so would probably make half the quantity next time. I also only ended up cooking it for 31 mins, due to the altitude of where I live I do notice that baking times can vary so I would try checking at 30 mins. I found the batch i made for 45 mins was a little drier.
You can try using GF All-purpose flour for this cake. Others have and it was successful for them. As for the dairy in the cake (the butter), I have seen vegans or those who have dairy intolerances try vegetable shortening in their baked goods.
For the sauce, use any nut or coconut milk in place of heavy cream and then vegan butter. I am just throwing that out there in case you want to try it for yourself.
Thanks for the review!
I’ve been making sticky date cake for years but sometimes can be far too sweet!
This recipe is perfect amount of sweetness and probably the best caramel sauce I’ve ever made. Thank you so much for this simple and delicious recipe
Thank you so much, Sam!
Just made this! Tasted great! What a great way to use up all those boxes upon boxes of dates I have since Ramadan haha
So happy to hear!
We LOVE this cake!!! The first time I made it, I had unexpected company coming in less than an hour so I decided to quickly whip it up. They went crazy over it. I had about half the sauce leftover so I just kept it in the fridge until I had time to make the cake again. Both times, the cake was gone in less than 24 hours. It’s that good!! I love the contrasting textures and it’s perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but equally delicious on its own. If I could rate this recipe 100 stars I would!
Thank you, Mona! Such a kind review!
Can we substitute a package of baking date paste instead of whole dates or will it throw off the consistency?
I have never done so but I believe a few people who made this have and were successful but I cannot attest to it myself.
We love anything with dates, so I made this for Eid. And WOW! My family loved it, even my kids! I will definitely be making this again.
Thank you Heifa, for all your simple, delicious recipes. xx
So happy to hearn 🙂 Thanks for the lovely review.
Thank you for the recipe Heifa, looks amazing.
What would 1 cup equate to in grams? I can never get cup measurements right!
Hi! What part are you referring to in the recipe?
The 1/4 cup sugar and the 1 1/4 cup flour please!
Thank you x
The cake turned out amazing! Such an easy to follow recipe!
I am happy to hear you enjoyed it!
I made this last night and I can’t stop eating it. Kind of messed up the sauce because I didn’t have all the ingredients but it came together fine. I’m thinking of even melting some butterscotch chips I have to drizzle on the top. Also, I think you could tweak this to make it as muffins and it would be fabulous. Thanks Heifa!
I heavily dislike dates but the picture was too good to be true, so I decided to give it a try. The minute I tried it, I said to myself that I have been missing out on a lot. I love how the spices of cinnamon and ginger come through. I love how moist it is, how it’s easy to make, and definitely a crowd pleaser. I already recommended it to a bunch of friends too!
I am happy you gave this cake a chance and it won you over!
Mashallah, your recipes are mind blowing. I typically dont like dates and don’t eat them. After making your mammoul recipe last Eid, I tried a mammoul and loved it. Seeing this rexipe, I knew I had to give it a try and it does not disappoint!!! The perfect amount of cinnamon, ginger and dates. It made the house smell wonderful and was a perfect way to welcome fall on our first chilly night in Michigan! The butterscotch drizzle on top was the most perfect addition, everyone kept scooping up extra to put on their plate. This recipe is a keeper!!!
You are so kind, thank you Maryam!
Beyond amazing recipe!! 36 weeks pregnant here and was craving and glad I could start eating dates. Came across this amazing recipe and had to try it! So light, and very very very delicious. Super easy to make too and didn’t take long! I am so in love, I could eat this all day everyday!! ♥️
This makes me so happy, thank you for sharing!
This recipe does not disappoint! Sent it to a family dinner and received comments in how amazing and delicious it is! The butterscotch sauce is amazing. Must try! Will be making again!
I am thrilled to hear that!
Wow! This was absolutely delicious! I made it yesterday for a family gathering and let me tell you, everyone loved it and people were fighting over the crumbs! Thank you so much for sharing this! I can’t wait to try out some more of your recipes 💕
Tried this recipe today and it turned out finger licking good! Everyone loved it. Used only fifteen dates and followed the steps. Turned out perfect!
Absolutely delicious! The butterscotch sauce complements the cake so well! The over all process was quick and easy and very easy to follow. If you like dates this is the recipe you were looking for! 🙂
I’m an awful baker but this cake was so easy to make and unbelievably moist and so Moreish. The sticky sauce was addictive, definitely going to be my go to easy cake recipe for the future. Thanks for sharing fufu! X
This makes me so happy! I hope you try some of my other baked good recipes and no bakes too!
Hi! Can you recommend other toppings? Walnut or pecans is not available or a bit expensive here in asia .
You can actually omit the nuts entirely or substitute for some chopped almonds.
INCREDIBLE TASTE ! Foolproof recipes from Haifa as usual💖
Sticky date cake was beyond amazing!! Honestly one of my favourite cakes! So easy yet so good!
It is a favorite of mine as well! So happy you liked it.
Must try!!! It’s so good and easy to make. It’s amazing warm and cold! 10/10 one of the best cake recipes I have ever tried.
This cake was soooo delicious and super easy to make! Heifa’s recipe is simple and clear to follow and the result was spectacular! This will be my go-to dessert whenever I have guests over!!
This dessert was soooo good!! My hubby devoured it! I also made it for my family when i visited UK in the summer of this year and they thoroughly enjoyed it too. As always easy to follow recipe with amazing results! Thank you!
I am so happy this was enjoyed!
I absolutely loved this recipe! It was such a great crowd pleaser! It was so moist with just the right amount of sweetness for dessert! A must try!
I am obsessed with this cake, I have made it five times already for different groups and everyone always loves it. You’ve really elevated this cake with the nuts, it’s fantastic. Thank you.
That’s awesome!! So happy it’s a family fav!
Easy to make, enjoyed by everyone, butterscotch sauce was delicious, next time I think I would make this in a wider dish so it could have more surface area covered with butterscotch!
Honestly I’m speechless!!!
The best cake ever!!! I am not the best baker and I was so surprised how this turned out!!
This date cake is spectacular! Luckily I had all the ingredients at home so I whipped this up tonight and my whole family loved it! Definitely going to be making this more often 🙂
I am thrilled you enjoyed it as much as I do!
I just wanted to say, i dont usually comment but ive used several of your recipes and you are so talented mashAllah. I love this cake and everyone whos tasted it so far fell in love with it, ive made it so many times now and just wanted to say that its amazing keep up the great work!
I appreciate the wonderful review, Anna!
I was not sure how I will like this as I’m
Not big fan of dessert or dates but this was perfect sweet dessert. Recipe is quite easy to follow. I also now know how to make butter scotch sauce! Haha
Made this cake for the family and everyone loved it. Literally most delicious cake! Thank you Heifa!
This cake turned out to be delicious! It is so tempting to start eating as soon as you take it out of the oven. The butterscotch with the pecans had a great flavor combined together. I would get fat if I bake it again. I could eat the whole cake alone lol. Everyone enjoyed it!
Simply amazing!!! So easy to make and delicious—a real crowd pleaser. Perfectly sweet and moist! I didn’t change a thing. This will be in the dessert rotation going forward! Thank you for another wonderful recipe Heifa 🙂
Really craving this right now !
So was I so I made it!
My cake turned out super dense and not at all cake like, ie it’s super dense and rubbery? Idk if that’s the right descriptor. Would you know where I went wrong? I love sticky toffee pudding and really wanted this to come out well for iftaar but I can’t figure out what went wrong 🙁
Ramadan Kareem to you as well. My only guess was both baking soda and baking powder weren’t added or they are expired. If the recipe is followed to a T, then it should come out great!
Made this last night and wow it was so easy to make and so good! I will be making it again!
Love to hear that!
INCREDIBLE. Best date-related recipe I know of!!
Fool proof recipe! Easy to follow step by step instructions! Love it!
Amazing! Easy to make and wows every one who tries it!
That is awesome to hear 🙂
I’ve made this cake several times and it’s always a hit! Such a perfect date cake recipe! Also super easy to make so thank you for that Heifa!
It is one of my favorite’s too!
Delicious!! Recipe is simple to follow and I even made cup cakes from the batter, tasted just as good and moist! Thank you for sharing!
Woww! This cake turned out heavenly! The smell…the taste…pure perfection! Fufu has done it again, her recipes are always on point! With Ramadan around the corner, this cake will be a go-to for dessert! Can’t wait to serve and share with guests inshallah! Thank you for blessing us with this recipe!
Thanks so much, Manar!
this is my too dessert recipe to make and eat. it is scrumptious and the addition of the nuts is absolutely genius, you know our taste buds!!
Thanks so much, Jabenen!
Every time i make this cake, my guests are sooo impressed! It’s so moist and delicious. My sister, who doesn’t like or eat dates, loves this cake!! That’s how good it is!!
Heifa, thank you for sharing this recipe. It did not disappoint. I made this for a brunch and my friends loved it. Btw I accidentally put in a whole stick of butter and the cake still turned out beautifully.
2nd time making it – it’s as amazing as it sounds. Sooo good!
