This cake is absolute madness. Well ok, I admit it’s cheating a bit with the marshmallows and chocolate chips but then again, it’s sweetened with date puree and there’s no added fat so it’s still a good option when you’re in need of a bit of indulgence. My kids love making s’mores when we go camping, they could eat them non-stop. So, I came up with the idea of creating a cake that would make us feel as though we’re in camping mode all year round. Enjoy the memories!
If you bake this cake, I’m sure your house will resound with great shouts of joy. It’s excellent with regular date puree and slightly more decadent if you use caramel date puree. Won’t this just add more sugar to the cake? NO, NO, NO! There’s no added sugar whatsoever in any of my date purees. All there is are dates. In fact, why do so many recipes for date squares call for added sugar or brown sugar? It just doesn’t make sense when you think about it. Incidentally, my hubby could eat the whole thing in one sitting.
By the way, this recipe will feature in my upcoming cookbook Energize Your Day, available in spring 2021.
