Is this cake really a Sugar free / No Refined Sugar cake ?
Yes this cake gets its sweetness from dates. A few weeks ago, when I received a batch of Organic date from Dubai when my mom visited me this year I found myself wondering what to do with them.
These sweet, luscious dates on the vine were perfect for snacking, but how else could I get creative with them? Date nut cake was an obvious choice and what a perfect excuse to redo the images for this Date & Walnut Loaf Cake!!
Date & Walnut cake will be a hit at the holiday table this year. It makes a lovely dessert year-round, but its warming qualities are especially welcome in the winter months during a festive celebration.
I have made this many times and it's always delicious! You can skip the nuts of an allergy in the family and it is still good. Especially with a nice, hot cup of coffee in the morning. Yum ! I have Replaced all purpose flour with Gluten free or whole wheat for a healthier version
The dates provide lots of moisture, which makes this a convenient make-ahead dessert—the cake will not dry out if you make it a day or two before the holiday begins. The walnuts add some nice texture and crunch.
This Date & walnut loaf Cake is amazing. Just what my taste buds wanted. Crust is chewy, cuts beautifully, and so moist. This is my new go to recipe!
