Ingredients

  • Organic unsalted butter, for greasing
  • 6 tbsp 
white whole-wheat flour 
+ additional for dusting (TRY: King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour)
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 2 tsp 
unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp 
each ground cinnamon and baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt or sea salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup 
finely chopped pitted Medjool dates
  • 1 cup 
raw unsalted Brazil nuts, 
roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp whole milk

Honey butter

  • 1/2 stick 
organic unsalted butter 
(1/4 cup), softened
  • 2 tbsp 
raw honey (preferably 
orange blossom)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF. Butter a 9-inch cake pan or pie plate, then dust with flour (tap out excess). Or butter then line bottom with a circle of parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, zest, cocoa, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add eggs, dates, nuts and milk and mix well. (TIP: It’ll be thick and chunky, so you’ll need to use some elbow grease.) Pour into pan, leveling off with the back of a spoon. Place pan on a baking sheet and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until top is light to golden brown and center springs back when pressed.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare butter: In a small bowl, combine butter and honey. Serve with bread. Bread can be served warm or at room temperature.
