Date & Walnut Cake with Caramel

September 8, 2017

The Sephardic Rhodesli Jews greet the New Year with sweet tasting food, auguring a joyful year. The Rosh Hashanah festive table is laden with an abundance of symbolic foods prepared for the ancient tradition of reciting blessings, Yehi Ratsones. Plump sweet dates, representing the hope of protection, are one of the foods.
I have updated my mother’s date and walnut cake, which was not included in my book “Stella’s Sephardic Table”, as it has become a firm favourite amongst my family and friends.
This moist, not overly sweet cake makes an irresistible finale at a Rosh Hashanah dinner. I like to serve this with a warm caramel sauce and tahini ice cream or a dollop of freshly whipped cream. Shabbat Shalom to everyone!
