This cake works using butter and cows milk too, with the same quantities used here.

This cake is delicious, light and moist and caramel flavoured due to the combo of dates and banana.

    I made it into muffins and it was really nice. A little dry, but overall a really nice recipe!

    Loved it! I made it as per recipe using GF flour, but halved the cacao & used 2 bananas instead of 1. I took it to a friend's house to cater for her children who have dairy & gluten intollerances... all the kids had seconds. It was moist & flavoursome without being too sweet. I had to bake it for 55mins though (possibly to cater for the extra banana) & it was a little crumbly to cut (we were impatient though). I also crumbled 1/2 tbsp of brown sugar to garnish with the coconut.

    Unfortunately, my cake turned out quite dry, not sure what went wrong. Thought I might try toasting it  tmrc_emoticons.~ as the flavour is quite nice.

    Delicious!!  Freezes really well too.  I cut the cake into slices and froze them individually for my husband to take to work with his lunch.  Thanks tmrc_emoticons.)

    This cake is delicious and moist. I replaced the eggs with chia seeds (1 tblsp chia seeds to 3 tblsp water per egg), worked a treat.  Thank you!
