Eggless Dates Cake


Unbelievably Soft Cake... and the better thing about this cake is absolutely no butter and with all the goodness of dates... Made it as a gift for many friends and they all fell in love with it just like i did the first time... 

18 dates( Khajoor )
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup all purpose flour or maida
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup dry roasted nuts(optional)
Note: If you use ‘baking powder’ instead of ‘baking soda’, cake becomes a bit harder.
Soak the dates in warm milk overnight (I usually don’t soak the dates since I use the seedless dates, I just heat milk and dates for few minutes or microwave them so that dates becomes soft and help in grinding). Remove the seeds.
Add sugar and grind them to a smooth paste along with the milk in which it is soaked in.
Add oil and mix.
Sieve together flour and baking soda. Add the flour one table spoon at a time and mix slowly. Add the nuts and mix.
Preheat the oven at 180 C. Bake the cake in a greased oven proof dish for 35-40min (or till a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean)
