This simple and delicious cake rises up tender and moist, with little chunks of apple scattered throughout. It’s spiced just right with a wonderfully crunchy pecan topping.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a small bowl, stir together the Pecans (1 1/2 cup), Brown Sugar (3 tablespoon), Unsalted Butter (3 tablespoon), Ground Cinnamon (1 teaspoon), and Salt (1 pinch) and set aside.
Step 2
In a medium saucepan combine Pitted Dates (1 1/2 cup) and Water (3/4 cup). Cook over medium heat, stirring occationally until dates are very soft and pasty, about 10 minutes.
Step 3
Remove from heat and stir in Spiced Rum (2 tablespoon). Allow to cool slightly before adding to recipe.
Step 4
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13-inch pan with Nonstick Cooking Spray (as needed). Line the pan with parchment, overhanging on two sides - this allows you to lift the cake out of the pan.
Step 5
While dates are cooling, whisk together the All-Purpose Flour (2 cup), Baking Powder (2 teaspoon), Baking Soda (1 teaspoon), Ground Ginger (2 teaspoon), Ground Cinnamon (2 teaspoon) and Salt (1/2 teaspoon) in a small bowl. Set aside.
Step 6
In a seperate small bowl toss together Apple (1 cup) and All-Purpose Flour (1 tablespoon). Set aside.
Step 7
In a medium bowl whisk together Brown Sugar (1/2 cup) and Vegetable Oil (1/4 cup). Add Egg (2) one at a time, incorporating after each. Add dates, Unsweetened Apple Sauce (3/4 cup) and Buttermilk (1/2 cup) whisking to fully combine.
Step 8
Whisk in dry ingredients until combined. Add diced apples, shaking off any excess flour as you add them. Stir to evenly distribute.
Step 9
Pour into prepared pan and sprinkle evenly with pecan streusel. Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Step 10
Allow to cool completely prior to lifting out of the pan and cutting into desired portions.
