cake topping

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.
