No bake Mango and Strawberry Pie
The weather has been so hot. Here in the UK we've been experiencing a heatwave, which is different and nice, but it does make fasting a lot harder. Not being able to drink water or eat food until sunset has been difficult, however it does make me realise how lucky I am. Here I can drink water as soon as the sun starts to set, but there are people around the world who havn't drank water or eaten any food in days. So I have to say Ramadhan has really helped me to be thankful for all the things I have and that I do need to do more charity work to help the poor and needy.
Anyways, let me introduce you to my mango and strawberry pie. My dad claimed it was one of the best desserts I've made! I have to agree with him. This is such a refreshing dessert, so fruity its perfect for summer!

This cake was one of the first cakes I made when I got into baking and since then it has become a family favourite!
I once made it for school and my friends really enjoyed it, one of them has been begging me for the recipe, but now that we both live in different countries I havn't been able to make it for her and she's been craving for this mouth watering cake. So this post is mainly for my dearest friend so that she does not have to wait to come to England to have this cake, she can now make it herself and have it in her own home.
The cake itself is very moist due to the addition of dates and walnuts, which add that little bit of sweetness and texture. If you love dates then this is the cake for you! Don't worry if you are not a big fan of walnuts, I'm not either. However I do suggest to add a tiny amount of walnuts as it does liven up the cake.
