Easy Moist Date and Nut Honey Cake

Easy Moist Date and Nut Honey Cake

Posted 2017-09-27 by finyfollow

This is another version of a honey cake which I find is very moist and not as sweet as an ordinary honey cake.

Using dates make this a delicious moist cake for any occasion. Dab a bit of cream over it for extra deliciousness!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 55 minutes
Serves: 8 - 10

Ingredients
170 g dates (Medjool are best)
1 cup flour less 2 tbsp
2 tbsp corn flour
1 tsp baking powder
¾ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt
Pinch of nutmeg
¾ cup vegetable oil, or similar
Less than ½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup honey
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup chopped walnuts

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 160°/140° fan forced, and line about a 20 cm cake tin with baking paper or grease it - I used a springform

  • Put the dates whole in very hot water and let them soak while you make the rest of the cake.

  • Mix together the flour, corn flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.

  • In another smaller bowl, whisk together the oil, brown sugar, honey, eggs and the vanilla.

  • Pour these wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir till a thick batter forms.


  • Drain the water from the dates, pit them, and chop them into small chunks.

  • Put the walnuts and date chunks into the batter.


  • Put the batter into your tin and bake for about an hour.


  • Take out of the oven and put on a wire rack to cool.
