Vegan Date Cake
18 dates, pitted
3/4 cup plain or vanilla soymilk
3/4 cup unrefined cane sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon baking soda
Got this recipe online and veganized it. It comes out the most beautiful golden brown color and smells amazing. Tastes even more amazing as you will find out.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and oil an 8x8 inch metal baking tin.
2. Put dates, soymilk and sugar in a blender or food processor and blend/process until dates are pureed and ingredients are well combined.
3. Pour date mixture in a large bowl and add the oil. Stir well to incorporate. Add flour 1 tablespoon at a time and mix slowly.
4. When you have incorporated all of the flour into the batter, pour into the baking pan and bake for 20-30 minutes or until toothpick test comes out clean.
Note: I have made this cake diet friendly by decreasing the sugar to 1/2 cup and the oil to 1/4 cup and it came out a little softer in texture but still good. You may experiment with applesauce instead of oil and see how it turns out.
