Date Honey Nut Cake | The Shiska Blog

Dates are very nutritious, naturally sweet and add lots of moisture to this cake. Medjool dates are available at Whole Foods Market and frequently at Costco. View photo tutorial.



Date Honey Nut Cake ingredients (13)
Makes 1 (8- or 9-inch) loaf cake
3/4 cup (6-oz) whole dates
1 cup cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
Pinch of nutmeg
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Nonstick cooking spray

Notes:  Cream cheese frosting is optional. View Menu.


Date Honey Nut Cake directions
Preheat oven to 325ºF. Place dates into a bowl and cover them with very hot water.

Meanwhile, make the batter. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients (cake flour through nutmeg).

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (vegetable oil through vanilla); pour into the dry ingredient mixture. Stir until a thick batter forms.

Drain and pit the dates; then chop into small chunks and fold into the batter.

Generously apply cooking spray to a loaf pan; pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake cake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Remove from oven; cool on wire rack.
