Surprisingly good cake, despite the weird ingredients list. White bread? Dates? Really? Honestly, it all works! It tastes like one of those cakes full of butter and egg yolks! A warning to all who are tempted, though. It is a VERY fussy thing to make. The cleanup seems endless. I made it for my husband's birthday, and I think it took me the entire baking time for the cake to clean up the kitchen! I ran out of time the first day and made the glaze on day #2. But if you make the cake, you HAVE to make the glaze. There does seem to be a typo in the ingredients, as the glaze instructions mention mixing in the instant coffee, but there is no mention of dividing the instant coffee between the cake and the glaze anywhere. And no mention of instant coffee in the list of glaze ingredients. Maybe someone at Eatingwell can fix this?
