It was going to be a sticky date cake, but at the last minute it had some ginger and a pureed granny smith apple so it should probably be correctly called a Sticky Ginger Date & Apple Cake.
This is an easy recipe to make and it gives you a yummy, fruity rich cake that is great as that mid-afternoon pick-me-up. And it's not going to wreck your diet.
And it's not going to wreck your diet why? It's a cake! Yes, but it is:
Preparation time is minimal. Most of the preparation can be done on the fly.
Start with the dates and the rest will be complete while you wait 10 minutes for the dates to soak.

In your favourite mixing bowl:
I like moist rich cakes so when I reached this stage I thought that an apple and some ginger would go well.
I quartered an apple, removed the seeds and pureed in the Blendtek Twister Jar.
I then just folded this into the cake mixture, along with the ginger and left it so that there were distinct, visible trails of apple and ginger
Line a baking tray with cooking paper and fold in the mixture. I used a loaf type tray.
Bake for about 45 minutes or until a skewer can pierce the cake and be removed cleanly.
I then made about 30 holes in the top of the cake with the skewer and poured some Wild Kithul Syrup over the top which soaked into the little holes.
And that's it!
Turned out quite good but I think you could actually spice it up a little more. I might play with more apple in a couple of varieties of texture next time.
