This is a good cake with somewhat moist texture. It is not too sweet but has a unique taste. Serve with ice cream or as you wish.

  • Place dates in a bowl. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon baking soda on top and mix well. Add 1/3 cup boiling water, stir, and set aside until dates have swelled, about 10 minutes. Squeeze with your hands to remove most of the liquid.

  • Meanwhile, mix flour and 1 teaspoon baking soda together in a bowl. Combine instant coffee, milk powder, and 2 tablespoons boiling water in a separate bowl; mix until dissolved.

  • Beat sugar, margarine, and eggs together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until well blended. Add coffee mixture and dates; beat until well mixed. Gradually mix in flour. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.

I soaked the sliced dates in brandy. Very nice on the first day, started to dry out the next but still nice. Next time I will add some sliced apple and cinnamon to keep it moist for longer. Read More
