  7. I made this cake today. Let me tell you, it was amazing and was the softest cake i made all my life! It baked perfectly with no cracks on the top.
    I improvised on the recipe with one alteration…I replaced the hot water with hot coffee, and let the dates soak overnight.
    I also made a coffee glaze for the top…1 cup sugar, 1 and 1/2 tbsp butter and 2 tsp strong brewed coffee.
    I recommend this cake to everybody out there. You MUST try this!
