Whole Wheat Date Cake with No Refined Sugar.
Whole Wheat Date Cake with No Refined Sugar. Jammed with dates, this cake will be a delight to bake
I used 18 - 19 dates
whole wheat flour
Boil 1 cup dates with 1 cup water till the dates are soft and pulpy about 2 - 3 minutes. Blend into a smooth paste. Set aside to cool down completely.
Beat together coconut oil and sugar till light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat till creamy.
Add in the dates paste and mix well.
Sift together baking powder, baking soda with whole wheat flour.
Add this flour to the dates batter little by little. Gently fold in with a spatula.
Mix in the vanilla essence and the chopped dates. Transfer this batter to a greased cake pan
Bake in a preheated oven of 350 F (180 C) for about 40 to 50 minutes till a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Serve warm over tea or with a glass of milk.
