Date and Walnut Squares

Assalamu’alaikum 🙂


We had a lot of dates in the fridge, so thought we’d step away from chocolate a bit and make something different. We followed a recipe book that we have.

The smell while it’s baking is wonderful Alhamdulillah 🙂

You can substitute dried fig, or put both in this cake.


1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 cup finely chopped dates
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup plain yoghurt
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

This is the world’s easiest recipe…dump everything except the last 2 ingredients in a bowl and just mix it with a spoon.

Spoon into pan lined with baking paper and sprinkle the combined sugar and cinnamon over the top.

Bake at 180 degrees C for about 30min until skewer inserted comes out clean.

Enjoy 🙂
