- 300 grams Dates pitted
- 2 --- cups aromatic tea, eg Earl Grey
- 65 grams extra virgin olive oil, (must be Olive Oil)
- 370 grams almond, frozen
- 1 pinch salt
- 50 grams pine nuts
- 1 tablespoon pine nuts, extra for top
- 1 sprig rosemary
- 1-2 cups water
Soak dates in tea overnight
Place almonds in freezer (this will give you a finer meal and prevent your almonds from becoming almond butter)
Preheat oven to 230 C
Line a springform pan with baking paper
Place almonds in bowl and mill 3 seconds speed 8 or until fine
Remove from bowl and set aside
Place dates in bowl and blend 5 seconds speed 4
Remove from bowl and set aside. Rinse bowl.
Place almonds back in bowl
With blades running speed 3, gradually add enough water to make a smooth batter (about 1 1/2 cups)
Add oil, salt, dates, pine nuts and 3/4 of the rosemary leaves.
Mix 40-60 seconds speed 4 or until combined
Pour into prepared tin
Sprinkle with remaining rosemary leaves and pine nuts
Bake in hot oven for 45mins (or until starting to brown) then turn down to 160 C for 30mins.
Cake is ready when top is crisp and golden and the cake springs back in the centre. Cake can be moist and a bit gooey in the centre or can be firm. Either way is delicious and it will depend on your oven as wether you achieve one or the other. You just don't want it completely runny in the middle!
