I had created this decadent moist date dark chocolate cake some time ago and ever since have been meaning to share its recipe on the blog. So here it is today. I can assure you that this easy-to-make cake is here to impress. Wishing you a happy & relaxing baking!
Sometimes, all we really need is an old fashioned recipe that is easy to make yet rich in taste and texture (oh well, maybe in calories too!). And these beautiful date & nut calls are exactly what is needed today.
I first came across the idea of date balls many (and I mean many) years ago when I was still a student in elementary school. Only then I remember the teacher calling them “Hnayneh”, or something like that, and they contained butter-sautéed bread crumbs instead of the nuts. Till this day, I still remember how tasty they were.
Unfortunately however, I don’t know where these beautiful little bites originate from as it seems this recipe, or variations of it, can be found in different Arab countries. (more…)
