  • 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


  • 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
  • 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. 
  • Once the dates are soaked, blend the dates along with the milk it is soaked in to a smooth paste.
  • Add oil and mix
  • Sieve the flour, Baking Soda and Baking Powder.
  • Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mix and mix slowly.
  • One can add 4-5 tablespoon of sugar if you feel it is not sweet. I did not add any.
  • 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)

  • 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.

  • 1 Cup = 235 ml, 1 tbsp= 15 ml, 1 tsp = 5 ml
  • One can add 4-5 tbsp sugar if required.
  • Baking Times can vary, so anytime you bake do keep an eye on the cake 5-10 minutes before the baking time specified in the recipe.
  • One can replace the milk with almond milk and make it vegan.
