A Date with a Date Cake :)

Wanna go for a Date this Valentine!!! Go with a Date Cake :)


Dates (Khajur) - 25-30 Seedless
Milk - 2 Cup
Sugar -3/4 Cup
Wheat Flour - 2 Cup
Baking Soda - 1 & 3/4 tsp
Oil - 3/4 cup
Cashew Nuts - 1 tbsp (Chopped)
Almonds - 1 tbsp (Chopped)

  1. Chop the dates and soak in milk overnight. (I didn't have time so chop the dates. In a microwave safe cup/bowl add the milk and dates and microwave it for 2 minutes) 
  2. Let it cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven at 220°C.
  4. Blend the soaked dates, milk and the sugar and bring it to a smooth paste.
  5. Shift it to a bowl and add oil to it.
  6. Now add the flour gradually and mix it.
  7. Add the chopped cashew and almonds while saving a little for later on.
  8. Line a butter paper to the baking tin.
  9. Pour the batter to the baking tin and sprinkle the saved nuts and almonds at the top.
  10. Bake at 180°C for 40 minutes or until the toothpick doesn't come out clean. 
  11. Take out and let it cool for 10-15 minutes.
  12. Once cooled turn upside own, remove the butter paper and it's ready to cut :)
Go Grab It ...:)
