Hello everyone.   It has been a while since my last post.   I will not give you a recipe for this post,  since it was a complimentary dish from a dearest person. All I can say is that it was delicious!    

Date and Almond, Square Cake

It’s been ages since I last posted a cake recipe. Yesterday I had a million of things to do but I was feeling I had to do something for you as well. 
I decided to create a date/almond cake that would be easy to prepare, and perfect with a cup of tea!

It took me approximately 5’ minutes to gather all ingredients and 10’ minutes to prepare the cake. Very easy, isn't it?


Date and Almond, Square Cake
12 Servings

1/3 cup peanut oil
90gr unsalted butter
¾ cup cane sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 small eggs
1½ cup all purpose flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
¼ cup fresh milk (2% fat)
150gr dates (19-20 dates) pitted and chopped into small pieces
½ cup (60gr) almonds, chopped

1. Preheat the oven at 170ºC.
2. Melt the butter, oil, sugar and vanilla in a medium sized saucepan.
3. Remove from heat and let it cool.
4. Add eggs and mix in well. Stir in flour, baking powder, cinnamon and baking soda. Add milk and mix lightly with a fork or a small spatula.
5. Add dates and almonds. Mix lightly.
6. Bake in a square pan (20cm x 20cm), for approximately 35’ minutes.

Serve with a cup of tea or coffee!!


  1. I'm soooooooooo glad to see a cake recipe from you :)
    I love dates(!) and always have almonds in the freezer.
    I do need a quick cake sometimes and then I have trouble finding a good recipe.

  2. It looks delicious. We don't see dates in Greek supermarkets often except during the Christmas period and then they are quite expensive so I don't buy them often.
