CARDAMOM-DATE SNACK CAKE. I loved this cake -- very quick and easy to make, very moist with lots of rich 'carmel' flavor. The cardamom is wonderful and I use Mejdool dates far better than the standard ones. Delicious and easy-to-make and best of all it doesn't taste like a good-for-you cake -- a perfect snack cake for the holiday season when dates are abundant!

CARDAMOM-DATE SNACK CAKE Yogurt with nutella, cheese and crackers, a sliced apple with peanut butter, a handful of raw almonds when you're feeling particularly virtuous. Maybe you wouldn't exactly call it a snacking rut, but a snacking routine. I've been thinking a lot about how I spend my time lately. You can have CARDAMOM-DATE SNACK CAKE using 13 ingredients and 12 steps. Here is how you achieve it.


  1. Prepare 2 cup of all purpose flour.
  2. It's 1 tsp of baking powder.
  3. You need 1 tsp of baking soda.
  4. Prepare 1/2 tsp of salt.
  5. It's 1/2 tsp of ground cardamom.
  6. It's 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon.
  7. You need 5 tbsp of butter,softend.
  8. You need 1 cup of granulated sugar.
  9. You need 3 large of eggs.
  10. Prepare 1 tsp of vanilla extract.
  11. You need 1 1/3 cup of skimmed milk.
  12. Prepare 1 cup of chopped pitted dates.
  13. You need 1 of sliced almonds for the topping.

Mainly because, more than ever, I feel like at the end of the day I plum run out of it. Dates are amber (duh) in color, soft in texture, have almost a caramel-like flavor to them and are loaded with fiber and energy. There's a lot going on this coffee cake situation, but it all works nicely, I think. The dates add nice sweetness and texture throughout.
