Date Cake (Eggless)

Ingredients to make Date Cake (Eggless)

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 30 dates, pitted and washed
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped

How to make Date Cake (Eggless)

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Grease one 6 inch round cake pan or a medium-sized bundt pan.
  2. Soak the dates in warm milk for about 3 hours. (The dates should absorb milk and swell up.)
  3. Make a puree of the dates. Add oil into the mixture, then add vanilla essence and mix it well to get a uniform mixture.
  4. Whisk together the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour and baking soda. Keep it aside.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix till it's incorporated well. Do not overmix. Add the almond meal and give it a good stir. Then fold in the toasted walnuts.
  6. Pour it into the prepared tin and bake for about 35 minutes or till a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Then remove it from the oven, after 5 minutes remove it from the pan. Let it cool in the rack.

My Tip:

The cake is mildly sweet. But if you prefer a sweeter version, you can add 1/4 cup powdered sugar to the dates puree.
