Kaikat Al Tamar is a cake loaded with dates. And again sticky syrup made from dates is poured over to make it more yummy. Few days back a friend requested me to bake something for her daughter’s national day school function.I told her in advance baking a cake is not a problem but decorating is not my forte.
She told me whatever I baked for her was completely fine for her & leaving me with no choice but present something good for the kiddos. As we are talking about the national day of UAE, I wanted to bake something using the core produce of this country. And what better to use than dates. I have combined the dates and arabic coffee, which takes this cake to another level in taste. So it was decided to make a dates sheet cake, later cutting into rectangular bars & then top it with small UAE national flags to get the feel of the national day.
.I have been baking this cake since so long and every now and then altering to our taste each time making it better in taste. It’s a simple cake to be eaten warm with poured date syrup along with the side of an ice cream.
