Eggless Dates Cake

Thats right..its eggless..yet unimaginable moist and soft-easy and a quickie and a big hit with the crowd. I followed the exact recipe from  Shilpa's Aayi's recipes but reduced little bit of sugar and my baking took less time than the specified.She says that it would catch up a "cake fever" and indeed it did :-)

  • 18 pitted dates /date fruit
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2-3/4 cup sugar(I used brown sugar)
  • 1/2 cup of oil
  • 1 cup of maida/all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • choice of nuts(optional)
  • Pre heat oven to 350 degree F
  • Heat the milk and dates for a few minutes until the dates become soft
  • Grind this with sugar to a fine paste.
  • Add oil and mix it well.
  • Sieve the flour and baking soda and keep aside.
  • Add the flour little by little to the liquid mixture until everything is blended smoothly.
  • Add the nuts if needed.
  • Pour into the cake pan and bake it in oven for 30 minutes.(Time might be sure to check it in between)
  • Cake is done,when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and tidy.

Serving suggestions
  • Serve its as such or frost it with your favorite frosting.
  • The cake will be extra moist, so take care when taking it out from your pan.
