Recipe | Quick eggless Date cake

The goodness of Dates and wonderful aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg make these cakes a perfect tea-time goodies.
At times I replace Dates with Date syrup which is readily available in market. The syrup reduces time to assemble and bake this cake.

  • 1 cup All purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped Dates
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp. chopped almonds
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg powder
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder

Method; Bring milk to boil in a pan.
Take it off  and soak de-seeded and chopped dates in it for about 2 hours.
Grind the soaked date with sugar and milk into fine puree.
Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon powder, chopped almonds and nutmeg powder in a large bowl and combine well.
Pour date puree and melted butter in the bowl and fold in with a fork or spoon to make a smooth batter. Preheat oven to 180°C and grease small baking tins or a single round cake tin.
Pour the batter in baking tins and bake for about 25-30 minutes or till done.
