Chocolate Date Cake Recipe

Chocolate Date Cake

It’s been a couple of weeks since I have updated this space…. I was busy with shifting our apartment and settling down in the new home… Still I have a lot to unpack and I am only cooking some basic stuff just to survive ;)… Today just to relax, I thought of posting this easy one bowl chocolate date cake recipe that I made recently… The batter is completely prepared in a saucepan, and that means you only need to wash up one bowl!.... Dates add moistness to this dark, fudgy cake…. and this cake goes very well with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream…. A great dessert for a party with little effort :)…
