1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 ¾ cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped dates (Medjool or Deglet Noor recommended)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

  • Directions:

    1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9×13 inch baking pan. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper for easier removal.
    2. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This will take about 3-4 minutes using an electric mixer.
    3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Stir in the vanilla extract.
    4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
    5. Gently fold in the chopped dates and walnuts using a spatula.
    6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread evenly.
    7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    8. Let the cake cool completely in the pan before cutting and serving.
