Method:

  • Add dates to boiling water, stir for a couple of minutes till it starts softening. Leave this mixture aside to cool.
  • In a separate bowl, beat together butter and sugar. Once the mixture turns pale yellow and light, add the eggs and beat just until eggs are properly combined.
  • Add sifted flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon powder to the egg mixture and beat till it is well combined. (Do not over beat)
  • Lastly, add the cooled date and water mixture. Fold gently with a spatula.
