The recipe just came into my mind when I was doing a test(some important ones, bology, math, etc.), no not really. I forgot about it for some hours. When I was done, man, I couldn't fathom how the test was a bit(umm...) different than what we expected. So I came home, and rather than doing some homework and workout, I opened my kitchen closet and found only a few ingredients for our next meal, and I thought 'To all my sweat and tears from then, BYE FELICIA!'
This cake just like its name, not an original recipe you've known. First, I'd put an unhealthy ratio of sultanas to dates(my apology, I'm not a fan of the taste). Second, my laziness and a toothaching amount of sugar just make my hand grab a yogurt rather than a custard.
