Eggless Walnut and Dates Cake

One of the best combinations for Cake is Walnut and Dates. While the Walnuts provide crunchiness to each bite, the dates provide natural sweetness.  This will appeal to those who do not like Chocolaty flavor!! The most favorite Cake at my home!! 
Prep Time
15 Minutes
Cooking Time
35-40 Minutes
8 Inch diameter, 6-8 People
All Purpose Flour / Maida
Baking Soda
2 Cups
1 ½ Cup
½ Cup
¾ Cup
¼ Tsp.
¾ to 1 Cup
¼ Cup
1.     Chop dates and walnut finely and set aside.
2.     Get butter up to room temperature
3.     Mix and Sieve All Purpose Flour / Maida, cocoa powder and baking Soda and set aside
4.     In a mixing bowl, add butter and sugar. Whisk vigorously for 3-4 minutes.
5.     Add curd and whisk again for 2-3 minutes.
6.     Add chopped dates and walnut and mix well and beat for some more time.
7.     Mix the sieved all-purpose flour and whisk again for 1-2 minutes
8.     Now add milk slowly and keep on mixing till you get a medium consistency (not too thick or thin… thicker than Idly batter if you would compare).
9.     Preheat the oven for 5 minutes at 350 F (160 C). Grease the baking pan with a little butter.
10.  Pour the batter to baking pan and bake for about 30 minutes at around 350 F till the Cake turns golden brown.
Note: The edges bake faster than the center, so keep an eye on the edges. Another test is to prick with a knife and knife to come out clean without any batter sticking to it.
11.  Take out the pan, let it cool down
