Instead of using round baking pan I used my beautiful bundt pan which was long due to use a wonderful gift that I got from my sister-in-law, it's a very beautiful bundt pan exactly like I wanted in amazing blue color that makes the tin looks so nice I didn't use it for long just adoring it ;)

This is my basic cake recipe that I use for most of the eggless cake while using oil, we can also make this cake with wheat flour or use half of wheat flour and half of maida, since this time it was made to gift I didn't use wheat flour but you sure can the cake looks moist and delicious either way.

You can also add any dry fruits of choice, chop it and add along chopped dates. You can use walnut which goes so well with dates or cashew nuts, almonds, pine, raisins, hazelnut, macadamia just anything you wish or use mix of nuts to have good crunch, I wanted only the dates flavor so I ignore the nuts this time. Enjoy the easy, delicious cake, want to have a bite? :)

  8. Grease a 8 inch round cake pan well and dust with flour, tap inverted pan 2-3 times to remove the excess flour (I used a bundt pan here), add batter, level the top and bake for 30-40 mins or until a tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean, mine got baked in 25 mins so after 25 mins check the cake if not done then check after 5 mins, do this until you get clean tooth pick.
  9. Once the cake is baked, cool on a wire rack for 5 mins, invert the cake pan to remove the cake and allow it to cool completely on wire rack. If you cake is not coming out of the pan gently run a knife all around the pan edges to loosen the cake.

Serve it as snack along with tea or coffee or have it as dessert, option is yours. We love to have it as both :)

Notes
  • Have all the ingredients at room temperature, specially dates.
  • You can also puree dates with little milk and then mix remaining milk, sugar it will help to enhance the cake color. But I prefer having chopped dates pieces in cake taste wonderful while eating, option is yours.
  • All spice powder is purely optional, if you don't have that then ignore it.
  • Adding fresh grated nutmeg enhance the cake flavor to very much but you may feel strong nutmeg flavor in cake which will be fine by next day.
  • You can make the cake with half of maida and half wheat flour.
  • You can add any chopped dry fruits of your choice 2-3 tbsp or 1/4 cup

Flavorful and delicious Dates Cake.
