Eggless Dates Cake

Hello World!
Well! Are you thinking if I am coming out of a deep slumber! Well not! Then, what explains such a long absense from this space! I am going to answer that shortly.

As I have already mentioned in some of my previous posts that I have started a new blog and it chronicles my experiences with food, books and everything I feel like writing about. So, these days I am active in that space only. I had started this blog 'The Veggie Hut' to write about my cooking experiences. But, believe me I learnt cooking in that process of blogging. So many food enthusiasts in this blogsphere to be inspired from! I loved cooking and blogging. Gradually, I realised I would like to blog about everything I am enthusiastic about and that can list a number of things starting with books. So, the idea of starting afresh took shape in my mind and Pages was born. I would like you to join me on there and join me in my journey in this blog world.

I have posted a couple of recipes there. Do have a look at them and let me know what you think of them!

This probably will be my last post on this space. However, I may update it with any food related post I do on my new blog. So, for this last post, I have a Dates Cake for you. Enjoy the sweet treat!


1 cup AP Flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup pitted dates(About 18 soaked in water for 2-3 hours).
1 tsp baking powder.
3/4 tsp baking soda.
1/4 cup soft butter.
1/4 cup water used for soaking dates.
1/4 cup milk.

2. Strain the dates but keep the water it were soaked in. Churn the daytes with milk to make a smooth paste.
3. Shift flour, baking powder, soda 2-3 times together so atht it is well blended.
4. Cream in the sugar and butter till well incorporated and fluffy.

8. Let it rest in the tin for 5-10 mins before turning it on a wire rack to cool.
