Sticky Apple Date Cake

With this cake, we guarantee your first date won’t be your last. All puns aside, though, anyone who has a bite will ask for seconds, thirds, and even fourths. A generous helping of fresh ginger is what gives this recipe its unique, light, and tingly heat. When it comes to baking with fresh dates, you have to boil them, since the skin can be hard and crunchy. Make sure you taste one before you cook them all, though, because unripe dates are sour and chalky. Optimal color for a ripe date is amber, but yellow ones can still be used. The intense sweetness of ripe dates is offset with tangy apples like Pink Lady or Braeburn. Add an easy caramel sauce on top and you have a dessert that’s sure to stick with you.
