Dates Delight - Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Dates Cake

  • Whole wheat flour: 1 cup
  • Granulated sugar : ¾ cup
  • Black dates : 18
  • Milk : ¾ cup
  • Veg oil : ½ cup
  • Baking soda : 1 Tsp
  • Chopped nuts : 1 Tbsp

Soak the de-seeded dates in little milk for 15 mins. Add vegetable oil, sugar and rest of the milk into a mixing bowl and stir till the sugar melts. Keep it aside. Then sieve together the whole wheat flour and baking soda twice. Grind the soaked dates into a fine paste and pour it into the wet ingredients. Then slowly add the flour into dates and combine well. Finally add the chopped nuts and stir. Transfer the batter into a greased pan and bake it for 35 to 40 mins at 176° C. 

Note: The recipe given above is for a full recipe. While baking, I halved the recipe and baked in a 6 inch round cake pan. You can reduce the quantity of the sugar depending upon the sweetness of the dates.

I added a few raisins and it seemed like that was a good addition as my 7 year old ate it and asked it to be her snack for tomorrow at school..........thank you.
