Dates Cake

As you all know , baking has been my recent passion which helped me to put on like 3 kgs in a month . Ok, wouldnt definitely put the blame completely on this goodies but I should also have tried to burn out those extra calories. Yes, I have become a lazy bum in this last one month as if I was hyper active before. I was baking atleast once in 2 days and mostly chocolate cakes to the extent that I have already starteed hating it now. But I dont want to stop baking and tried this one , trust me this is the most simplest and deadliest cake in the world I should say.

I have seen this in Aayi's recipes and immediately wanted to put my hands on it just because it demanded very less ingredients. I made it thrice in 2 days .. can you believe it?..Good that not many of my folks heard about it and now its become my signature dessert ..hee hee ...Thanks a lot shilpa ..






Ingredients : ( Its become by heart now)

  1. Maida - 1 cup
  2. Sugar - 3/4 cup
  3. dates - 18 nos.
  4. Refined sunflower oil - 1/2 cup
  5. Milk - 3/4 cup
  6. Baking Powder - 1 tsp.( If baking soda is used cake is really dense) .
Method :
  1. Soak dates in warm milk overnight and remove the seeds and grind it smooth .
  2. Add sugar to the above mixture and run the mixie for sometime. To this add oil and give a couple of runs.
  3. Sieve maida and baking soda thrice.
  4. In a big bowl, to the dates and sugar mixture, add seived dry ingredients tbsn. by tbsp. mixing it slowly after each spoon.( I used hand mixer and mixed it at low speed).
  5. Bake it at 180 degree for about 25 mins. 

The most yummiest cake is done .
