She does not like nuts in her cakes hence nut outside!!
But this is one cake she likes because of the coffee in the cake.
But my husband likes it a lot. In fact I have to stop him many times from buying dates so that this cake is made again and again.
But inspite of having made it so many times I have not liked the pictures, I think I need suggestions for pictures!
