How to make Dates Carrot Cake

  1. For Caramel - Take sugar in a deep sauce pan and heat it on medium heat .

  3. Make the caramel really dark and on the bitter side. The bitter the caramel,the richer will be the color of the cake and the sweetness well balanced.
  4. Slowly add hot water to the caramel as adding water to the extremely hot caramel may bubble up causing serious burns.
  5. Switch off the heat as soon as the Caramel is dissolved.
  6. For Cake, Prepare your pan by applying butter or oil and dusting it with a little flour. Preheat the oven to 350°F/ 180°C.
  7. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt together and keep aside.
  8. Add a tablespoon of flour into the grated carrots, chopped dates and mix it.
  9. Beat together eggs and sugar.Add the oil gradually beating the mixture really well.
  10. Add the caramel and vanilla essence.
  11. Add the flour mixture and fold slowly and gently so that no lumps are found.
  12. Fold in the dates and carrot into the batter slowly.
  13. Pour the batter into the cake pan and tap gently for the batter to get levelled
  14. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the middle of the cake comes back clean.
  15. Enjoy the cake while warm as it is or with cream cheese frosting.
