About this recipe

Its a historic Recipe from 1940’s – the world War era when sugar was scarce and use of honey was the only thing used in bakes. This is a gluten free and healthy recipe.

Ingredients for Gluten Free Honey Dates Square – Historic Recipe

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped (I used almonds, cashews and pistachios)
  • 1/2 cup dates, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Figs, chopped
  • ⅔ cup honey
  • ¾ cup gluten-free flour or whole wheat flour or even all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt

How to cook Gluten Free Honey Dates Square – Historic Recipe

  1. Soak figs and dates in warm water for an hour and set aside till they become soft.
  2. Deseed the dates and chop figs and dates into small bites.
  3. Also chop a mix of nuts, I have used almonds, cashews and pistachios and set aside.
  4. Lightly whisk eggs. You don't have to form stiff peaks.
  5. Add chopped nuts, figs, dates and honey and mix with the eggs.
  6. Stir in Gluten Free flour, you can even use Whole Wheat Flour , All purpose flour if you like.
  7. Also add Baking Powder and Salt and mix. Do not over mix just till everything is moist.
  8. Line a 9×9 baking tin with some parchment paper that nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan. I have crushed the parchment paper and then opened and placed it, this trick will help it sit better. Also preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
  9. Pour the batter in the baking tin and smoothen the top with spatula.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes till the toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  11. Remove it from the tin along with parchment paper. When the cake cools down slice it into squares.
  12. Serve with your favourite Cup of Coffee or Tea.


If you are gluten tolerant you can always use whole wheat flour or All purpose flour or a partial mix of both.
