Vegan Date Walnut Cake Recipe

Date Walnut Cake Recipe

Eggless, Butterless, Sugarless Cake? Man, this is a good recipe. This is my second time making it. The first time I made it, I was really just curious to see how it would taste, as well as the texture. Well, I decided it was really good and made it for my mom’s birthday today. She had a piece a couple of hours ago and loved it! And that’s coming from a huge chocolate lover. I made an frozen mango frosting to go along with it. I winged the amounts, but it included some maple syrup, (more) dates, a few frozen mango slices, and a little bit of coconut oil.

Let’s get right to the recipe, shall we… 🙂

Vegan Date Walnut Cake Recipe
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 18 Pitted Dates (I had the big block of dates, so I just estimated as they were all stuck together)
  • ¾ Cup Almond Milk/non-dairy milk
  • ¼ Cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • ¼ Cup Unsweetened Apple Sauce
  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • Optional: A few chopped walnuts to sprinkle on top of cake before baking.
Directions
  1. Preheat oven 350F
  2. Add milk and dates to a small pot and place on the stove on medium heat. Heat for a few minutes until the dates get soft. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. Place milk and dates (most of the milk probably soaked into the dates, don't worry about there not being along of liquid left) into a food processor (I used a Magic Bullet), add the maple syrup and grind/blend until a smooth paste is formed. Add in the apple sauce and blend some more.
  4. Place date-mixture into a bowl and add in the flour and baking soda, a few table spoons at a time. Alternate mixing and incorporating more flour into the bowl.
  5. When everything is mixed, add batter into a square pan or round cake dish (I added a very thin layer of coconut oil to the bottom of the pan so that it would be easier to remove once cooked) and bake for 35-40 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool before removing onto a cooling rack.
 

8 Slices is approximately 146 calories per slice.

Here is how today’s cake turned out:

Because it was my mom’s birthday, I decorated the top of the cake slightly. Normally, I wouldn’t bother adding anything on top. The cake is already quite “chocolately”, even though it contains no chocolate. 🙂

Enjoy!
