I adore Medjool dates - I love them so much that I used to buy them by the kilo and eat them like sweets. I had to stop that, but I am always keen when I see a recipe using Medjool dates.
Frank Camorra's Date and Banana Cake with Orange Icing is replete with soft, juicy
Medjool dates. When I saw this recipe in The Age magazine, it went straight to the front of the list to make.
I wasn't disappointed - it is a beautiful. moist cake, full of the goodness of bananas and dates:
The orange icing, although not essential, was a beautiful way to top it off.
If you are looking for an afternoon tea cake with a difference, you can't go wrong with this date and banana cake.
