The date sponge cakes are incredibly delicious, slightly crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside, and the sweet date in this pastry becomes chocolate-like. This simple dessert for tea is very easy to make in 30 minutes (including baking), it is only important to plan everything correctly, so follow my recommendations.
For work, you will need silicone, metal or paper muffin cups, since the dough for these biscuits is fluid, and it spreads without a mold.
Choose dates according to your taste, the larger the better.

Ingredients for date biscuit muffins
- 3 large chicken eggs;
- 110 g granulated sugar;
- 1 g vanillin;
- 125 g wheat flour;
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 60 g butter;
- 12 dates;
- powdered sugar.
Method for preparing biscuit cakes with dates
We immediately turn on the oven to heat up - the heating temperature is 165 degrees Celsius. If cooking in silicone molds, brush them with a drop of vegetable oil. Metal ones need to be greased with butter and sprinkled with flour, paper molds are an ideal choice, they do not need to be processed with anything.
So, break eggs into a bowl, add vanillin and granulated sugar, mix the ingredients with a whisk, leave for a couple of minutes so that the sugar begins to melt.
Mix and sift flour, baking powder and a pinch of fine salt to balance the taste.
Beat eggs with sugar with a mixer for 5-6 minutes, until a lush, thick, non-falling mass is formed. Previously, eggs were beaten by hand, but this is a rather time-consuming process, it turns out faster with a mixer.
Sift wheat flour onto the whipped mixture, gently mix dry and liquid ingredients with a spatula.
Mix the ingredients thoroughly to get a smooth dough without lumps of flour. Melt the butter, cool a little, add to the dough.
Knead the dough in a uniform circular motion.
We put the prepared molds on a baking sheet. Put 1.5 tablespoons of dough in each mold. This recipe uses standard silicone molds, which I usually fill 2/3 of the dough, if you pour more, the dough can spread in the oven.
We take 12 large dates, take out the seeds. Put a date in the center of each cake, heat it a little so that the dough will cover it.
More than a thousand varieties of dates are known, for this recipe the Mazfati variety is suitable - chocolate brown dates with soft and fleshy pulp, or Kakabab - honey dates, these are the sweetest record holders!
We send the baking sheet with the molds to the oven preheated to 165 degrees, set it on the middle level. Cooking for 25 minutes.
Sprinkle the finished biscuit muffins with dates with powdered sugar so that the powder scatters evenly, use a fine sieve.
These biscuit muffins can be stored for several days, over time their taste does not deteriorate, but only gets better. According to a similar recipe, biscuit cookies are prepared, their preparation takes a little less time, and, accordingly, the baking dishes should be smaller.
