Last week I was at the store and for some reason dates sounded really good. So I went over to the bulk food section, pulled down on the lever and... nothing happened. They were all stuck. Well, after a great deal of shaking the bulk food container and hitting it a few times, they came out... and they came out fast. And since I couldn't put them back, I ended up with over a pound of dates. Now I like dates, but I hadn't intended to get that many. So, I asked myself, "What can I make with a whole bunch of dates in it?"
According to my Betty Crocker Good and Easy Cookbook, Date Cake is the answer. And it's the perfect addition to a "Box Lunch for a Business Girl." Sounds perfect. Basically, it's an English Sticky Toffee Pudding with a nutty-date topping. And it's super tasty.
