Muneeza’s Date & 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:

 

225g (8oz) Dates, pitted

½ Cup walnuts, crushed

¾ Cup gluten-free all purpose flour

½ Cup coconut oil, melted

½ Cup coconut sugar

2 tsp arrowroot powder

¼ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp vanilla powder or 1 tsp vanilla essence

5 Tbsp water

4 Tbsp chia egg (see below)

 

Directions:

 

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 (see below)

 

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 1 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. Enjoy this moist date and walnut cake fresh out of the oven!

 

Chia Egg Recipe:

2 Tbsp chia seeds

5 Tbsp water

 

Directions for Chia Egg:

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.
