I stumbled upon this delicious cake when i found the One Arab vegan on instagram just a few weeks ago and noticed this delicious sounding cake. It was the perfect addition to our Ramadan desserts along side our nightly coffee ritual.

The recipe she uses on her website we almost perfect with the exception of the use of flour. So my go to trial flour was oat flour instead and it turned our perfect! Everyone loved this amazing new Salted Caramel Date Cake; it was delicious, moist, saucy, and sweet, a little too sweet. So in addition to changing up the flour i used i also reduced the sugar used in it and its still pretty sweet but just flawless.
