made out of fondant for a birthday cake
and here the whole cake :) it´s a lovely icelandic date cake the men of our family just love - no birthday without it :-)
Here the Recepie:
- 1 Cup Dates, chopped
- 1 Cup Almond, chopped
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 3 Tbsp Flour
- 1 Tsp Soda
- 1 Tsp Vanilla essence
- 2 Tbsp cold Water
- 2 Eggs
You don´t really need a mixer, but I usually mix the eggs with the sugar first and then add the rest.
Bake in a good greased tin, since it is sometimes hard to get out of the tin.
180°C, ca. 20 - 25 Minutes
Place on a rack to cool
Then whip some cream (250ml) and slide a Banana for the top and sprinkle over with some chocolate.
Best is to make it one day earlier, or the evening before, that makes the cake extra juicy and soft.
