Who doesn’t love Cake! And it is so much fun to make them at home. If you have that kind of an interest then make this super easy, super tasty Dates Cake! It tastes great and has very nice flavours. And every time you make it, you get a soft Cake.

This Cake is not Eggless. But cakes with Eggs look nice and taste good. When I asked my followers why they keep asking for Eggless recipes, I was told that the cake is soft but it is smelling of Eggs. But this Dates Cake is not like that, it doesn’t smell of the Eggs at all.

Tips

Dates: I have used the sweet, ripe Dates that are easily available. You could use Kimia Dates if you have them.

Vanilla Essence: If you add Vanilla Essence at the time of beating the Egg, then you do not smell the Egg at all.

Baking:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees for 10 minutes. Keep the Cake tin in the middle rack and bake for 25 minutes. I have used OTG Oven. Those who use OTG Oven should switch on the rods and the fan and then bake.

  2. The Cake was baked in 25 minutes in my oven. But the time may be more or less depending on the capacity of your oven. So, poke a toothpick in and if it comes out clean, consider your Cake perfectly baked.

  3. After the Cake is baked, let it cool fully in the tin itself and then de-mold it.
