Notes about this recipe

    Correction from the author's website: The gram weights and cup measurements for the quantities of dates are 160 g/ 2/3 cup pitted and finely chopped Medjool dates

    This made for an incredibly moist cake. I didn't find that the weight called for in dates (160 grams) matched the cup measurement at all. I needed more than 1 cup of dates to get 160 grams. It was still barely sweet even with the date puree so I would only serve this as a breakfast cake, or maybe with a cheese plate, and not as a dessert. I skipped the fresh ginger since I didn't have enough, and subbed a teaspoon of ground instead. I'm sure the fresh would have been better.
