When a recipe has chocolate, date, and cake in it, it should instantly win your hearts. I think it’s the single most repeated recipe idea made in every kitchen. Don’t you agree with me? Well, this one has dates in it. It's simply amazing, soft, tender and moist. What you should know here, is that the combination of chocolate and dates is a complete synergy. So much more than the sum of its parts.
What makes this chocolate date and walnut cake unique is that it is a "mix-in-the-pan" type of eggless cake. Which means you can just mix all the ingredients together, right in the cake pan. There are a couple of things about this recipe that are worth mentioning. First, it does not contain eggs. Second, this cake uses natural sweeteners. And third, it has a moist texture and how you can store the cake in the refrigerator and it doesn't become too firm.
Dates naturally have high sugar content and hence are used as sweeteners in many of the recipes. Not just that… they are a great source of energy and iron and have many antioxidant benefits. The eggless cake is generally made with mild sweetness and hence can be consumed as an evening snack like a tea cake or as a dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. It’s best served warm so that the ice cream melts slightly and your sweet tooth prayers are answered and dessert dreams come true.
