Eggless Dates Cake

Day 26 BM#51 -
Today marks the end of this month long journey into the world of Baking. I shall soon update a page where all the baked goodies which made way into this edition will be highlighted. 

Here is a sweet cake which is close to my heart. It has won many hearts in our neighborhood as well.

I found the cake a trifle too sweet to my taste but no one who tasted this cake agreed with me. :) I would reduce sugar a little bit more. But then the sweetness of dates is a variable here.

Thanks to my friend, Shalaka who shared this recipe and has been in my notes for a long time now. I am glad I found the inspiration to bake it for this marathon.

Eggless Dates Cake

Ingredients - 

Dates 20 (pitted) [I used medjool variety which are very sweet]
Sugar 2/3 cup
Milk 2 cups
Cooking Oil 2/3 cup   
All Purpose Flour/Maida 1 cup
Whole Wheat Flour 1 cup
Baking Powder 1 tsp
Baking Soda 1 tsp
Salt 1/8 tsp

Eggless Dates Cake

Method Of Preparation -

Blend the dates, sugar, milk and oil into a smooth puree.

In a mixing bowl, sift the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Add the dates puree to the flour mixture and gently mix until well combined.

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Prepare a bundt pan by spraying oil and sprinkling flour to absorb the excess oil.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake for 40 min or until a tester comes out clean.

Invert the bundt pan onto a wire rack to cool. I dusted some powdered sugar on top. Upon cooling, slice as needed.
