I found and tried THE BEST recipe for a sugar-free cake. Actually, I baked them in a 9 x 13 pan and they came out like brownies.

And the best part? No sugar, no sweetener, no honey, just naturally sweetened from the dates, prunes and raisins. I honestly didn’t think this would be that tasty, but it really is. I found the recipe online but made my own tweaks changing out the flour to whole wheat and adding wheat germ. Good stuff!
