DATE CAKE! (Eggless)


20 seedless dates (khajoor), ¾ cup milk, ¾ cup sugar, 1 cup all purpose flour or maida, ½ cup ghee, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tbsp cashews & walnuts.

Soak the seedless dates in warm milk for 1 hour.
Add sugar and grind them to smooth paste along with the milk in which it is soaked.
Add ghee and mix.
Sieve together flour and baking powder.
Add the flour 1tbsp at a time to the above mixture and mix slowly.

Preheat the oven at 350 F.
Bake the cake in a greased ovenproof dish for 35-40 mins or till a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean.

PS: The color of the cake largely depends on the dates used. I have made it with black dates. So do not panic if your cake does not look exactly like mine.
