Why do we waste our money on buying stored cakes from a market or a coffee shop when we can make them ourselves? There is nothing more delicious and fun than making a homemade cake. Homemade cake is always fresh and tastes much better than a market cake that usually has artificial and cheap ingredients just to make it good enough to sell.

In this Instructable, I’m making a delicious date cake with a yummy mix of coconut, pistachio and chocolate topping. The cake recipe is super easy to follow, takes less than an hour to make and most importantly guaranteed tasty flavors.


Note: Preheat the oven to 360 F before making the cake.
