Eid Mubarak & Dates Cake

Eid Mubarak & Dates Cake



E
id Mubarak to everyone. As usual I do not wish to write about Eid too as few of them have done so ;) (call it am plain lazy to do anything of that sort)

We have celebrated Eid yesterday here in Singapore and here in SG it called as 'Hari Raya' and we all went to Singapore Zoo ;) and had a gud day.

Eid is always associated with Seviya. During my schooling days my friend use to invite many of us to her place to celebrate Eid and we were happy to go to her home to eat all the goodies. Also there was huge tiffins of seviya, halwa, puri, sabji, biryani used to come from my Dad's staff house ;). Yes it always been purely eating pleasure.

For Eid I wanted to post something sweet but since I do have Seviya already mention here so thought of posting this simple but wonderful cake.I couldn't control but try right away the cake. This cake is the second recipe after my Dates Ladoo that I have make the dish immediately.

I have followed everything as per the recipe with minor changes and this one was the best cake so far from my baking experiment ;). Soft & delicious and no one guessed it's dates cake. Being eggless is also plus point in this cake, I have use almonds, cashews for garnishing that's all.

The original recipes is from Aayi's Recipes.

Here is my version:

Ingredients:

Dates - 3/4 cup (chopped)
Milk - 3/4 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Oil - 4 tbs
Baking Soda - 1 tps
Cashews, Almonds - few

Method:

1. Soak dates in milk for 10-15mins, (this is optional) remove seeds if any.
2. Make fine paste of dates & sugar using milk used for soaking dates in small amounts. If there is any remaining milk of the 3/4 cup keep it aside. (I gave this task to Kedar and he did make very nice fine paste, I was happy with the end result ;) )
3. Sieve the baking soda and flour together and keep aside.
4. Place the dates paste in a big bowl, add oil and mix well. (The original recipes asks for 1/2 cup of oil but I used 4 tbs of oil, you may add more oil for better texture)
5. Mix the flour in small quantity in to the dates & oil paste. Add the remaining milk into the dough, if any.
6. Add half of the cashews and almonds and mix well.
7. Grease a baking dish and pour the mixture. Garnish it with remaining almonds, cashews.
8. Bake for 30-35mins in preheated oven on 200C.

The cake was very different and yummy, I give my thumbs up for the cake.


Have a closer look :)


Okie it seems like every post has to go to any one or other events :)
