Magic because it’s different every time you make it!
By Kate Dunbar, Patient Advocate
1 ¾ hours
- 250g stoned dates
- 300ml water
- 185g whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp cocoa
- 1 tsp mixed spice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- 500g any dried fruit (sultanas, currants, chopped prunes, cranberries, apricots etc)
- 75g mixed seeds of choice
- 80g ground almonds (other nuts if you don’t have almonds)
- Whole orange and lemon, washed and blended
- Add spices and cocoa to taste. I like mine spicey, so add a little more.
Step by Step Instructions
Oven 140 0C/ 275 0F/ Gas 1
Make the date puree. Simmer dates in water for 10 minutes, cool, then puree.
Mix the date puree, orange and lemon pulp to the dry ingredients. If it is a bit stiff add some plant milk.
Spread the mixture in a lined baking tin 23 x 30cm, or 23cm round. You can use an ungreased glass dish (X-fingers it will come out when completely cool with a little extra encouragement!)
Cook for 1-1 ¼ hours until a knife comes out clean.
So delicious, you’ll need to make two! Freezes well.
