Hiya, I was looking for dates cake recipe and I stumbled into yours. Great recipe and what a coincidence, I have a friend who is allergic to egg, so I thought this cake would be perfect for her. I really want to try this recipe, I have one question though. Your recipe is using Refined Flour and Wheat Flour, I hardly use those kind of flours. Can I use plain or self raising instead? And I read somewhere that if we replace 1 ounce of flour with cornflour, it would make it lighter. Do you think I can use that? Thank you so much!
Sussanna thanks for stopping by :)….. You could use self raising flour yeas you could use cornflour as well. Go ahead and lemme know how was it?
