Muneeza’s Date and Walnut Cake Recipe

This date and walnut cake is one my mother would lovingly bake for us growing up.  It incorporates a lot of the flavors of the Middle East.  The smell of this cake cooking for my own girls takes me right back to my childhood – I love how warm smells can bring us back to happy memories.

Ingredients
 
 

  • 8 oz dates pitted

Chia Egg Ingredients

Instructions
 

  • Heat your oven to 350 F on the bake setting.
  • Cut the dates into very small pieces and sprinkle the baking soda on them, and mix well.
  • Prep your chia egg recipe.
  • Put about 5 Tbsp of water to soak the dates and soak them overnight (or a minimum of 4-5 hours).
  • With a fork, press on the dates to mash them.
  • Place the flour, baking powder, arrowroot flour into a bowl.
  • Add the coconut sugar, coconut oil, and chia egg.  Mix with a wooden spoon until a batter forms.
  • Once the batter is ready, add the dates and walnuts and mix.  Save one Tbsp of walnuts to sprinkle on top of the cake.
  • Grease a baking dish or line with parchment paper.  Pour in the batter and bake in a preheated oven for 5 minutes.
  • Then pull the cake out of the oven briefly and sprinkle some more crushed walnuts on top.
  • Return to the oven and bake at 350 F for 36-38 minutes

Chia Egg Instructions

  • Add chia seeds to a small dish and top with water.
  • Stir and let rest for 5 minutes to thicken…it should be a gel-like consistency and thick.
