This is the time of the year again where dates are in abundance. With the 'Hari Raya' just round the corner, what better time to make full use of these lovely fruits. I noticed that there are a lot of variety of dates on the shelves and got myself in a bit of a mess just deciding on what type to choose. I wanted the 'not so sweet' ones but ended up getting just that. Could not bring myself to eat them whole, just terribly sweet so I decided to put them in a cake.
