Dates cake eggless

*************************************************************


Eggless Dates Cake to celebarte the Awards


This is one of the hit cake from Shilpa's - Aayis recipes, whenever i make this cake it never went wrong and came out perfect, thick and spongy. We both love this cake anytime, and most of my friends too. Shilpa thank you for such a wonderful cake for vegetarians. This cake actually gave me the confidence to bake some more cakes, that even eggless cakes comes out good. I have made some variation in the ingredients and quantity. I have used butter and baking powder, except all of ingredients are same as specified by Shilpa.


Ingredients

1 cup all purpose flour(maida)
18 dates(Khajoor)(Used seedless)
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tblsp spn cashews chopped


Method

1. Soak the dates in warm milk overnight after removing the seeds. If using seedless no need to soak them directly grind them in the blender using milk.
2. Add sugar and grind them to a smooth paste along with the milk in which it is soaked in. Take them in a large bowl.
3. Meanwhile,Sieve together all the dry ingredients flour+baking soda+baking powder.
3. Now add oil+butter to the blended dates puree.
4. Spoon by spoon add the flour mixer to the and mix slowly. Atlast add the chopped nuts and mix.
5. Pour it in a dusted baking tray and bake in the preheated oven 350F for about 30-40 minutes. So that the inserted knife/toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean.

Maya said...

Yes, I agree with you on this dates cake, its a super hit and I've made it many times too from Shilpa's. Congrats on all your awards Archy! Abt ur question, am sure you can use the flax meal too, coz its flax seeds powder rite, so should work fine. But I hear that compared to flax seeds, the flax meal turns rancid very soon, so you might want to keep that in mind, shelf-life swalpa kadime aagatte! Let me know if you do try.
