Dates Cake (Eggless)


We finished 11 months of our wedding life and entered into our 12 th month. On this occasion I made this dates cake which my husband likes.

Learnt From: Aayi’s Recipes

Ingredients:

Dates --- 18
Milk --- ¾ th Cup
Sugar --- ¾ th Cup
Oil --- ½ Cup
Maida / All Purpose Flour --- 1 Cup
Baking Powder --- 1 tsp
Ghee --- 1 tsp

Process:

Soak 18 dates in ¾ th cup of warm milk overnight. If you are using seedless dates no need to soak.


In a blender … Add soaked dates (if the dates are not seedless … remove the seeds), milk (which u used to soak dates), ¾ th cup sugar.


Grind to a smooth mixture.


Transfer that mixture to a bowl.
Add ½ cup of oil. Beat well.


Add 1 cup of maida flour and 1 tsp of baking powder together.


Beat well.


Chop cashew nuts to small pieces. Add them to the mixture.


Mix them to the mixture.
Grease cake pan bottom and side layer with a tsp of ghee.


Pour the batter on the cake pan.


Pre-heat oven at bake at 350 degrees… till the red light of the oven turns off.
Place the cake pan on the bottom grill of pan carefully.


Keep it for 35-40 minutes. (if you insert a knife into cake … the knife should come clearly… that is the indication that the cake baked correctly.)


Let it cool.
Place a plate on the top of the cake pan. Reverse it. The cake bottom falls on the top of the plate.


Cut the cake into pieces.
Enjoy the taste of dates cake.
I made this dates cake on my friend's baby shower function. One of my friends has decorated the cake with Creamy White. She used Betty Crocker's (Rich & Creamy Creamy White). This is good to prepare for occasions too.

  1. Thanks for this recipe. It turned out great. I used date syrup (12 tsps) instead of soaking and grinding the dates. I also used soy milk to make the cake vegan.

  5. Hi,

    Actually, I don't know how to cook in microwave oven. I baked it in oven at 350 degree Fahrenheit. It comes nice. Need to study on that lines and should give a try to answer your question. Try to answer you soon.
