We had a saffron, date, caramel cake in Marrakesh that literally brought tears to my eyes. I've been looking for a version to make at home. This one was quite delicious. The cake itself is very moist, dense, but light. When I cooked the caramel, I misread it and didn't let the sugar get dark enough before adding the cream so it wasn't very thick. However, it still tasted delicious. I also had added hydrated saffron and the accompanying water to the cream before adding it to the caramel which added another flavor element. I will definitely make this cake again but will be sure to cook the caramel for longer. Very delicious!
