Ginger & Date Cake

I tried to organize some of my pictures *uupss.. already more than 1,000 ?? * before my computer crack down ^_^ .. and I found some of food pictures I taken on 2010 are not posting yet , OK .. than before getting lazy let me write the recipe .

Pretty simple recipe and what I loved about this recipe was, you just need to put all ingredients together in food processor .. that's it .. not many of bowl to wash after that.

Fluffy ginger and date cake
Recipe : Patricia - Technicolor Kitchen

2 cups + 2 tablespoons (300g) all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
3 cups (420g) fresh pitted dates, chopped
1 cup (240ml) boiling water
2 teaspoons baking soda
200g unsalted butter, room temperature, chopped
1 ½ cups (262g) brown sugar, packed
4 eggs

Icing sugar, for dusting

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F. Butter a 26x16cm baking pan, line with baking paper and butter the paper as well.

Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and ginger into a large bowl and set aside.

Place the dates, water and baking soda in a bowl, mix and allow to stand for 5 minutes.

Transfer to a food processor, add the butter and sugar and process until well combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, and process well.

Pour over the flour mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until risen and cooked when tested with a toothpick. Allow to cool in the pan, then carefully unmold.

Cut into squares or diamond shapes and dust with icing sugar to serve.
