The beauty of these Delicious Mini Zesty Date Cakes is that you can make them from a well-stocked pantry. Even better, you can easily sub in other pantry ingredients. No dates in your pantry? How about dried figs? Or use your own homemade jam or compote. Just make sure your fruit filling is very, very thick and paste-like before assembling.
Tip: Twice as nice
Want an additional flavor in these sweet treats? Add a couple of chocolate chips to the date filling in each muffin cup before topping with the top layer of dough. Chocolate-date filling … mmm.
