Dates&Cinnamon Cake

Tuesday, October 5, 2010

There are some free courses which is supported by Municipality. Yesterday evening after work i went one of them to get web designing course. You know i am not so good with PC ,coding, web etc and sometimes i wanna do smth about my blog , but i cant do it because i am not familar about it, and for that i need to find an IT guy and ask and wait for respond and bla bla bla which make me nervous, so i thought i can get one of these course and make smth better. But when i went there , i saw there are too much people i guess who are thiking same with me, there were more than 100 people but they just get 20 people, so i got an exam and if i can success ,i will start a web designing course.. please wish me luck, i will learn the result after 1 week.. anyway lets talk about food abit:)
you know i am not so fan of sweet,dessert.. if you bring me a cake and pasta and ask me to choose i would never choose cake:) so that is why i guess i am more conservative about cooking sweet,desserts, cakes etc.
But there is one sweet called "mamul" which has date inside. We dont have it here, i order from arab countries, i am not sure if it is available any other place.
And when i was checking last day other people is blog , i saw a recipe Date Bread , the blog adress ; i really liked it and thought to cook it. but i cooked it a bit different.. and the result was really good , the taste is amazing... and one thing, i didnt add any sugar in this cake:)) but date and cinnamon enough sweet. it is as i like no so so sweet.. but great taste..
I should confess the above the cake a bit burned but it s because of my stupid oven:) but result is really good, i reccomend you to try..

2,5 glass flour (around 500gr)
20-25 dates
100 gr butter
1 gl milk (200 gr)
2 eggs
1/2 table spoon salt
1 table spoon cinnamon
1/2 table spoon baking powder

Soak the dates with hot water for 20-30 min. it will make easy for you to seperate the kernel from the dats..
Melt the butter and mix with other ingreidents exept dates.. finelly chopp the dates, i used blender for that.. and add on the dough, mix all well.. the dough doesnt become so liquid or also not so solid.
Lay some oil in a tray and put your dough.. heat your oven to 180 degree and cook 20-25 min. I added some castor sugar to serve..
Bon appetit..

This looks delicious! You just need some tea to go along with it and you are set!

Good luck with getting into your course. I love the idea of this cake sweetened only with the dates.

I am like you-- I always choose savory over sweet, but this cake looks delicious. In the fall, I always want cake and cookies! With cinnamon! And like the others said, I love a cup of hot tea with it!

This looks fantastic. I'll have to give it a try. You had asked on the Four Points Foodie blog about mascarpone cheese. You can make your own. Here's the recipe:

2 cups (500 ml) whipping cream
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Heat whipping cream in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly.

When the cream reaches 190 F, remove from heat; stir in lemon juice and continue stirring until the cream curdles and is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Allow to sit for 30 minutes.

Line a sieve with several layers of wet cheesecloth or a clean, damp linen cloth and set over a bowl. Pour the cooled cream mixture into the sieve, and allow to drain, undisturbed, until cooled completely. Cover the sieve with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

The next day, remove the cheese from the sieve in 1 piece and stir well to make smooth and creamy. Will keep in the fridge for 7 to 10 days.
