To convert from grams to cups, check out here The original recipe doesn't use coffee, I used it to have more intense flavour and colour. If you don't like coffee, just use boiling water to soak dates. Make sure you use best quality dates to bake this cake. Substitution for Self - Raising Flour - to get 1 cup self raising flour, add 1.5 tsp baking powder + .25 tsp slat to 1 cup plain flour. I got a 8 inch square cake and a mini loaf from the above qty.
