date-cake-recipe

             I tried this eggless date cake from the back of the dates pack I bought. The recipe was very simple with no sugar in it. I like mild sweet cakes/breads. This tastes more like that. So loved it. I was first afraid of how it is going to turn out as it is the recipe just from the back of the pack, but it turned out good. But they had given the name as dates rolls. I baked it in bunt pan, they had mentioned to bake in bread loaf pan. If you are sweet toothed, then this may not be your kind of cake, but still you can try adding sugar or pouring some sauces like caramel / butterscotch or chocolate sauce or even you can try spreading nutella after baking and try eating this cake, you will sure love it!

Notes

  • Baking time differs  from oven to oven. So better keep an eye after 30 minutes.
  • After baking, keep the pan over wet cloth. This makes the cake come out clean without tearing or sticking to the pan.
  • If you are sweet toothed, you can add 1/4 cup sugar for this cake.
  • You can replace lemon juice with vinegar.
  • You can add chopped nuts 1/4 cup. walnuts is the best combo!
  • I will soon update the pan size.
