  • 18-20 Dates
  • 1 1/4 Cup Milk
  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Oil
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tbsp Walnuts/Pecans


  1. Slightly warm the milk and de-seed and soak the date for 4-5 hours. More or less time might be required depending on the Dates

  2. Dry roast the Walnuts or Pecans on medium on stove top or in an oven until fragrant. Be careful not to burn them. Let them cool. 

  3. Once the dates are soaked, blend the dates along with the milk it is soaked in to a smooth paste.

  4. Add oil and mix

  5. Sieve the flour, Baking Soda and Baking Powder.

  6. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mix and mix slowly.

  7. One can add 4-5 tablespoon of sugar if you feel it is not sweet. I did not add any.

  8. Chop the nuts roughly and add the nuts and mix. (The original recipe called for adding some 3-4 chopped dates too, I skipped it)

  9. Bake in preheated oven at 170 Deg C for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. I baked in a Loaf tin, one can bake this in a square tin or a round tin. Baking time will vary depending on the size and shape of the cake pan.
