Dates Cake (egg-less & Butter less)

 when we decided to go to beach with friends on Saturday on a little picnic and each one had to make something and I  selected this dates cake. The original recipe is from Aayis Recipes. I have made this cake already and this time I made a little change and everyone just loved it. It is a butter less and egg-less cake.
