Ingredients
  • 6 ounces pitted dates, about 2 cups
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 1 1/2 quart souffle dish with non-stick spray.

  • Put the dates and water in a pot over medium-low heat. Cook and stir for 10 minutes until the dates are very soft. Transfer the softened dates to a food processor and puree until smooth. Add the sugar and vanilla, puree again until well-blended. Scoop out the puree into a mixing bowl. Sift together the cocoa powder and flour and add to the date mixture. Fold using a rubber spatula; combine gently until well mixed.

  • In a mixing bowl, whip the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the date mixture.

  • Pour the batter into the coated souffle dish, spreading it evenly with a spatula. Bake on the middle rack for 25 minutes until the outside is just set. Cool to room temperature. Shake some confectioners' sugar on top and serve.
