Outta my way pumpkin pie!  There's a new favorite holiday dessert to be had!  Date cake!  I was inspired to offer something new to my family this past Thanksgiving.  I decided I was going to bake my first ever date cake.  

I searched for recipes and decided to go with Ina Garten's version.  I only made one modification (brown sugar), but overall it was a great recipe!

All of the guests loved it. including my cousin Stefan, who is the toughest critic I know.

For your next holiday party, dinner, soiree...bring this date cake and win everyone over.  Being a winner feels good!  Get baking!

Special thanks to Ina Garten! www.barefootcontessa.com
