I softened the dates by cooking it in milk, and then it was lot more easier to grind it and blend it with the eggs, flour, butter and sugar.
I baked it for an hour and it had this nice rich color when it was all done.
Little bunny loved the whole aspect that she could dust the cake with powdered sugar. I always wonder why when she has to eat the cake she is not as excited as she is when it is in the making. So I guess tomorrow all her friends in the kindergarten will get a piece of this wonderful date cake.
