Good morning everyone! The weather has been really bad lately here in Greece! It has even snowed here in Zakynthos! I can’t remember how long it has been since I saw snow. Everything looked as it had been covered with powdered sugar! It was reall lovely but didn’t last long… Today it has been raining all day long! The schools were close so I didn’t have to go to work under these dangerous weather conditions!
I came across this recipe in a vegetarian book. It was love at first sight since I am a huge date fan! I have slightly adapted it and skipped the sauce. I think that it is so yummy that a sauce would be useless! You need to make this date pudding! It was a huge hit in our house and we devoured it in 2 days! All kind of desserts do not last long in our house since both my hubby and I have a sweet tooth!
Have a lovely weekend, friends!
