Date Cake

This cake is moist and yummy. It has rich flavors of dates, chocolate and chopped nuts or dates. No gluten and no dairy.


  • 1 cup Extra White Gold all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2  cup (100ml) vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup date syrup 
  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chip
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, or chopped dates

Powder sugar, on top of the cake


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease an 8" round baking spring pan with nonstick cooking spray, baking spray, or butter. 
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon.
  3. In a second bowl, mix the oil, eggs, date syrup, sugar, vanilla. Add the dry ingredients, chocolate and nuts. Mix thoroughly, until all ingredients are combined and no lumps remain.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the cake is set all the way through and feels springy to the touch (30 to 40 minutes).  A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.
  6. Let cool 15 minutes before removing from the baking dish. Slide a knife around the edges to help loosen the cake, if necessary.
  7. Before serving, sprinkle the top of the cake with powdered sugar.

To keep the cake from browning on the top too quickly before the interior batter cooks through the middle or center of the cake, after  25 minutes of baking, loosely cover it with aluminum foil .

Thank you for the recipe! I made it for Sunday brunch and my family loved it!
I chopped some dates instead of the nuts and grated chocolate.



So yummy and delicious cake! I substituted date syrup with maple syrup, it came out perfect!
