Ingredients to make Eggless Orange Date Walnut Cake

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup minus 2 tablespoons sugar powdered
  • 1 and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

How to make Eggless Orange Date Walnut Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and line the bottom and sides of one 8 ½ x 4 ½ inch loaf pan.
  2. Toss chopped dates in some flour. Whisk together first five ingredients in a large bowl. Keep aside.
  3. In another bowl mix oil, buttermilk, juice and zest of oranges and vanilla essence.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir till well combined. Do not over mix. Fold in walnuts and dates.
  5. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes or till the top turns golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 min.Remove from the pan and cool in the rack.
  6. Slice next day.

My Tip:

Add more zest for an intense orange flavour. You may also add chopped dried figs in place of dates.
