According to my daughter, this is the best cake that’s ever been made by anyone, anywhere, at any given time on the surface of this earth.
Not even the best “healthy” cake. The best cake, period.
That’s what she said EVERY SINGLE TIME she ate a piece.
And apparently, she really means it. She seems to loves it that much.
Now… I can’t say that I really disagree with her.
This is one awesome, spectacular cake. I am really super happy with this latest creation.
I’d even call this a signature dish.
It came out EXACTLY as I’d envisioned, too! Super thick, dense, chewy but moist, totally loaded with morsels of fruits and nuts, just like the best fruitcakes of this world. Sooooo tasty! No need to add any sugar to it either, the dates, chestnuts and dried fruits took care of that well enough. More than well enough, in fact.
I actually find it to be a tad on the sweet side, especially with the coconut glaze, which has a tiny bit of sugar added in the form of liquid honey.
I needed something gooey to make it, well, ooze all over the surface of the cake. So honey was the way to go. And it did its job wonderfully too!
But really, that’s 4 tablespoons of honey divided by 16 servings. So it’s not so bad, really, is it?
Now I’ve had this cake for breakfast every single day this week, and I am happy to report that it did support me extremely well. I usually am absolutely starving when lunchtime finally comes, but I went right through my usual time twice this week. Guess I wasn’t feeling that hungry, was I?
No doubt, this cake will really fill you up. So much so that I’m not even sure I can recommend eating it for dessert…
This is pretty much a meal in itself.
A meal that will undoubtedly make you go “hmmmm”
And you know what?
You will never ever be able to tell that it’s actually good for you.
