Date Cake & Caramel Sauce

Date Cake & Caramel Sauce

The amazing thing about living in Kuwait is that there’s always fresh dates. Tasty and sweet!!

We have a great Palm tree in our garden that blesses us every summer with dates.

Off course with that blessing comes a big responsibility of having more dates than one can handle…. To that I dedicate this fabulous Date Cake that my mother is very famous for and I’ve made it my own.

Enoy!!
