I have a cake recipe, which is based on a mixture of 250 g dates and 200 g almonds, which is mixed in the end. Can I use dried dates instead of fresh ones?
The full recipe is, for 10-12 pieces:
- 6 eggs, separated
- 200 g almonds
- 250 g dates (without seeds)
- 200 ml water
40 g cocoa
- Heat the oven at 175 °C
- Beat the egg yolk and egg white separately. Crush the almonds to powder; give dates, water egg yolk and cocoa into and mix it. Gently fold the egg white in.
- Bake it for about 20 minutes.
The recipe is named "Klitschkuchen" in Germany, which roughly means "very wet cake", but unfortunately I don't know a real English translation.
