      In another bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar using an electric mixer. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy. With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients, alternating with the date mixture. Pour into the pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven. If desired, place the pan on a baking sheet to catch any icing that might spill over. Set the oven to broil.

      This rating & review has been revised after overnight refrigeration (which I strongly recommend) as it is outstanding when served cold from the fridge! The cake itself is tasty, moist and texture perfect! The frosting adds a caramel richness and coconut crunch I found delicious! I made the recipe exactly as written, but had to use a 7x11-in baking dish. It was still filled to the brim when frosted. The cake & frosting are dark from the dates & brown sugar, so I think it would be esp eye-pleasing when served w/a bit of ice cream or whipped cream. Great recipe, Redsie! I loved it! Thx for sharing this taste treat w/us. :-)
