Date, Apricot and Walnut Loaf Cake
The first full day of fasting for Ramadan this year is Monday, 12 April, and the last will be Wednesday, 12 May, 2021. Between those days, the millions of people observing the holiday will abstain from food and drink from the meal before dawn (suhoor) to the meal after dusk (iftar).
Because it's recorded in the hadith, a collection of Mohammed's words, actions, and habits, that he always broke the fast with dates and water, Muslims around the world follow this tradition, start iftar in the same way.
Whether you're celebrating Ramadan, hosting or participating in iftar, or just a fan of gooey, caramelly dates (one of the earliest cultivated crops!) here is our recipe:
Ferrero Rocher Bliss Balls
It doesn’t get more indulging than Ferrero Rocher bliss balls… Especially when they’re made with completely natural ingredients and without any refined sugars. Too good to be true? Not at all! Our Date Paste and Nectar provides a datelicious, convenient solution – as it’s very malleable, it blends incredibly well with other ingredients. Although it’s made 100% of dates, it does not have a strong date flavour or date aftertaste, so you’ll have a feeling you’re snacking on actual Ferrero Rocher balls – just in a healthier form!
Gluten Free Date & Carrot Traybake
Date and carrot traybake is a perfect autumn treat – delicious, easy to make and packed with minerals and vitamins, it will cheer up any winter blues! and It's Gluten Free...
This is a completely innovative approach to making millionaire’s shortbread bites, keeping them refined sugar free and therefore more attractive for customers. Golden Date Juice Concentrate (golden date syrup) is used for the biscuit base and Date Nectar (Dark Date Juice Concentrate) for the caramel filling, giving Refined Sugar Free Millionaire’s Shortbread a natural caramel flavour and colour. Compared to a standard recipe, this innovative recipe allows manufacturers to decrease sugar by 31%, and increase fibre and protein by 20% and 14% respectively.
As raw cakes are growing in popularity, particularly in independent bakeries, coffee shops and at home, Marie Nichols has developed a date-nutrition recipe using only natural ingredients. Dates are used to naturally sweeten the cake, add toffee flavour, and to bind the base together. This recipe is vegan and free of refined sugar.
Cookie dough is one of the best treats ever, right? We highly recommend this recipe to any chocolate chip cookie lover!
The great thing about these recipes are that just about anyone could make it and it’s no added sugar!
