Ingredients

For the cake:

  • 9  Ounces  dates, pitted
  • 1 ½  Cup  water
  • whole cinnamon sticks
  • 6  Ounces  all-purpose flour
  • 4  Ounces  toasted quinoa flour
  • ¾  Teaspoon  salt
  • 3  Ounces  butter
  • 5  Ounces  sugar
  • eggs
  • 1 ½  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1 ½  Teaspoon  baking soda

For the sauce:

  • 1 ½  Cup  dark brown sugar
  • 6  Tablespoons  molasses
  • 6  Tablespoons  honey
  • ¾  Pound  butter
  • ¾  Cup  heavy cream

Directions

For the cake:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Bring the dates, water, and cinnamon sticks to a boil and simmer until the dates break down a little, about 5 minutes.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, quinoa flour, and salt.

In a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add then add in the eggs and vanilla.

Remove the cinnamon from the date mixture and then purée until smooth. Put in a bowl and mix in baking soda; set aside.

Add in the dry mixture with the date mixture, and mix until just combined.

Pour the batter into a well-sprayed hotel pan and bake until set, 20 to 25 minutes in a convection oven.

For the sauce:

Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.

Once the cake is baked and cooled slightly, cut to desired size in pan. Poke holes in the top of cake and cover completely with sauce. Let sit for 30 minutes to soak in the sauce before serving.

Quinoa Shopping Tip

Stock up on quinoa and have it available for the days you are tired of rice or pasta. It's a great substitute for rice, beans, cereal, bulgar, or couscous.

Quinoa Cooking Tip

The general rule is to add one part quinoa to two parts liquid in a saucepan. One cup of quinoa will take about 15 minutes.
