- 7 ounces dates, pitted
- 12 1/ 2 ounces water, boiling
- 1 teaspoons baking soda
- 9 ounces vegan butter
- 5 1/ 3 ounces Sugar
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 6 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 8 ounces bread flour
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Add baking soda to the dates and soak them in boiling water for 20 minutes. Then strain, reserving the water and chop finely.
Bloom the chia seeds with water.
In the bow of a stand mixer, add in butter and sugar. Using the paddle attachment on the stand mixer, beat until sugar and butter are incorporated and lighter in color, 2-3 minutes.
Add the dates and reserved soaking liquid to the butter mixture. Add chia seeds and vanilla extract. Combine together with paddle attachment, 1 minute.
In a medium bowl, sift the flour and baking powder and whisk together to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and beat together until uniform, 1-2 minutes.
Prepare the baking mold by covering it with butter and sugar. Then, line the mold with parchment paper. Pour the mixture into the mold. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
Once ready, take out of the oven, cool down and enjoy!
