Ingredients Serving: 10

  1. Dates (seedless) - 200 g
  2. All-purpose flour - 300 g - 3 cups
  3. Whole Milk - 375 ml - 1 1/2 cups
  4. Sugar - 275 g - 1 1/3 cups
  5. Oil - 150 ml or Butter - 50 g(melted and cooled)
  6. Baking soda - 1 tsp
  7. Baking powder - 1 tsp
  8. Nuts(mixed,chopped) - 4 -5 tbsp ( I used raisins,almonds,walnuts and cashew nuts)
  9. Whole Milk - 1/2 cup ( if needed)


  1. Preheat the oven to 150 °C. -Sieve the Flour and the baking powder and baking soda.
  2. In a small pan mix the dates and the milk and simmer it for 5 - 7 mins,until the dates are softened. Then grind the dates with little of the milk in which it was boiled, in a mixer to a fine paste.
  3. Then add the remaining milk (the milk in which it was boiled)too and pulse for a second so that it's well mixed.I used lion dates,.Alternatively you can also soak the dates for 3 - 4 hours.If using soft dates you can directly grind it .
  4. In a mixing bowl add the Dates and milk mixture,sugar and oil and whisk with a balloon whisk until well mixed.
  5. Add the flour mixture and whisk again until well combined. -If you feel that the batter is very thick(This depends on the dates used) add from 1/4 to 1/2 cup of milk and whisk well.
  6. Add the chopped nuts and mix well.The batter fills upto 3/4th in an 8" by 2" round pan.
  7. Bake in a Preheated oven from 35 - 45 minutes until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.Baking time might change from oven to oven and it's safer to check if the cake is done from the 30th minute.
