    Dates fit very well with walnuts, since they both have earthy flavors. The end result is a very delicious, fluffy and moist cake.

    With this recipe I managed to solve the puzzle with which many of you might have been confronted. How do I replace sugar with honey on a cake? It’s not as simple as putting the same amount of honey and that’s it. There are some other things that you have to be careful with to have a success in your experiment. I did research and tests and I have prepared an article with tips that will help you in any such attempt. Let’s see the date and walnut cake:
