Date and Walnut Cake

Date and walnut cake
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.

Now I am not a big fan of profiteroles or eclairs, but when my niece and I were watching Bake with Anna Olsen I couldn't resist myself to make some. I was quite shocked at how easy they were to make and what surprised me even more was the taste! I absolutely loved them.
