  • 60 grams butter
  • 1/2 cup yogurt

How to make Date and Walnut Jaggery Cake

  1. Prepare two 8 inch tins for baking. Line them with butter paper and leave aside.
  2. In a large bowl sift out both the flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt and keep aside.
  3. In a microwavable bowl, melt the butter and then add jaggery and whisk well. Add the orange zest and orange juice to it and mix well.
  4. Add the egg and the yogurt to this mixture and whisk until thoroughly incorporated . Add the dates to it.
  5. Add all the dry ingredients to it and mix until just incorporated and then toss in the walnuts. Pour into the prepared tins and bake for 35 minutes at 180 degree centigrade or until a skewer comes out clean.
  6. Meanwhile make the frosting. Whisk the cream cheese or mascarpone with the icing sugar and vanilla. Leave aside until ready to ice.
  7. Once the cakes are baked, remove from the tin, peel off the paper and let it cool completely before icing.
  8. To ice: Pour half the icing on to one cake and then top with the other cake. Pour the remaining icing on top and decorate with walnuts.

My Tip:

You can add a bit of cinnamon too to the cake
