A delightful cake flavored with dates. End your meal with a slice of date cake and dollop of ice cream or savor it as a tea time treat.


  • 25 - 30 dates (khajur) - seedless

    2 cups milk

    3/4 cup sugar

    2 cups wheat flour

    1 tsp baking soda 

    3/4 cup oil

    1 Tbsp cashew nuts (chopped)

    1 Tbsp almonds (chopped)


Chop the dates and soak in milk overnight. (If you don't have time to chop and soak the dates. In a microwave safe cup/bowl add the milk and dates and microwave it for 2 minutes and let it cool for 10 minutes.)

Preheat the oven at 220°C.

Blend the soaked dates, milk and the sugar and bring it to a smooth paste.

Shift it to a bowl and add oil to it. Now add the flour gradually and mix it.

Add the chopped cashew and almonds while saving a little for later on.

Line a butter paper to the baking tin.

Pour the batter to the baking tin and sprinkle the saved nuts and almonds at the top.

Bake at 180°C for 40 minutes or until the toothpick doesn't come out clean.

Take out and let it cool for 10-15 minutes.

Once cooled turn upside own, remove the butter paper and it's ready to cut :)
