Dates Cake - No Egg / No Butter Version

As always love the Eggless version of the cakes. This one is definitely a must try one. I mostly followed the same step as of Banana Walnut cake and the result was simply amazing. This version is not much sweeter, as I dont like too much sweet. Next planning to try more sweeter version, by adding more dates.


  • Dates - 1 packet (200gms)
  • Milk - 1/2 cup (more or less)
  • Oil - 1/2 cup
  • All purpose flour - 1.5 cups
  • Sugar - 3/4 cup (if dates are very sweet can reduce the sugar quantity)
  • Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
  • Almonds - 2 tsp (crushed)

  • Remove seeds from dates, wash and soak the Dates in hot milk for 1/2 hour.

  •  With 4 or 5 tsp milk, grind the dates to a smooth paste first.

  •  Later add the remaining milk and give a one more grind.

  •  In a big bowl, add the all purpose flour, baking soda and baking powder and sift nicely, so that all flours are mixed properly.

  •  In another bowl, transfer the dates paste from mixier grinder and add sugar and mix well.

  •  Add this sugar - dates paste to the flour mix.

  •  Mix them thoroughly, without any lumps. If thick, can add 2 tsp of milk.

  •  To this add the oil and mix gently. (do not over mix)

  • Preheat the oven with 180 deg C.
  • Dust the baking tray with oil and then with all purpose flour, so that cake does not stick to the bottom.

  •  Pour the dates-flour mix to the tray

  • ( Optional ) Add crushed almond pieces on top for decoration. ( I forgot to mix it along with the mixture. So added at the top ). 

  •  After 40 min, insert a toothstick and check it comes out clean. Take out the cake from oven and let it cool down.

  •  Cut the cake and serve. 

  • Yummy delicious cake is ready to eat


  • Replacing almonds with walnuts would be a better option too. 
  • You can increase the quantity of sugar, if you want more sweet cake.
