Date and Almond, Square Cake


It’s been ages since I last posted a cake recipe. Yesterday I had a million of things to do but I was feeling I had to do something for you as well. 
I decided to create a date/almond cake that would be easy to prepare, and perfect with a cup of tea!

It took me approximately 5’ minutes to gather all ingredients and 10’ minutes to prepare the cake. Very easy, isn't it?
