Gluten Free Date Cake

Woo hoo! My kids start school again tomorrow and I really can't hide my excitement. I really have loved having them home, but now they're bored, can't wait to see their friends again and I need some space!

I've been doing a bit of experimenting with cakes that freeze well to be cut up and go into lunchboxes and this new recipe is a winner. Not only is it free of gluten and dairy, it doesn't need eggs at all!! :-)
