DATES (KHEJUR) CAKE

A lovely light moist textured favourite is Dates Cake. This is very old-fashioned which can be a pleasant alternative to a fruited cake and a great sweet recipe for Christmas. It is very easy to make, full of nutritious and tastes just wonderful!


INGREDIENTS:

2 Cups Dates / Khejur (seedless)
1&1/2 Cup Self-Raising Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda (Soda bi Carb)
1 Cup Water
2 Eggs
1/2 Cup Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1&1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence


METHOD:

Combine dates, sugar, butter and water in a sauce pan. Heat together and cook till it comes to the boiling point.
Add baking soda in the paste and mix well. It helps to break up dates well. Let the paste cool down for 20-30 minutes.


Whisk eggs nicely and pour it in dates mixture. Fold well by using a rubber spatula. Add vanilla essence in it. Mix again.
Preheat oven at 180 C. Add flour and baking powder to the mixture. Mix it thoroughly.
Take a square pan. Spread a parchment paper or wax paper inside the pan and grease it little.
Pour the mixture inside the baking paper. Flat the top evently by using a rubber spatula. Bake for 40 minutes.

Take out the pan from oven and let it cool normally on wire rack.


Turn the cake out upside-down onto serving plate. The cake can be kept, wrapped in foil or stored in an airtight container, for upto 5-6 days. Cut and serve in desired shapes.
