#271 Fancy a Date?
Sally bought half a kilo of dates but as it was the end of market day the lady gave her a kilo for the same price :-) We ate a few, they were really ripe and wouldn't last much longer (no going out of date jokes here - too obvious).
Anyway, I got creative and made a primal Date & Walnut Cake (no extra carbs from flour or sugar like all the recipes tell you) and it turned out OK!
I peeled and stoned the dates, had about 250 grams of pulp. Using a food processor I blended in crushed Walnuts and ground Almonds, in total about 250 grams. Then slowly added 2 beaten eggs mixed with some sour cream and a teaspoon and a half of baking powder.
Put in a dish lined with baking foil and cooked in the 220c degree oven for 25 minutes.
