Eggless Dates and Walnut Loaf Cake is what I call a surprise cake!!


You know why??

A. It does not have any added sugar to it, yet perfect sweetened enough for a tea time cake.
B. This Eggless Dates and Walnut Cake is super soft, even though there are no eggs in it. (obviously, thats why its termed Eggless right.. šŸ˜‰ stupid me)
C. Surprisingly moist cake. all thanks to dates.
D. A crumbly and nutty cake
E. Another element of surprise is that it hardly takes any preparation time. If you exclude the soaking part then it just needs 10 mins of your active mixing time that’s it. Bake and enjoy.

So many a time I have made cookies in 15 mins but to bake a soft and moist cake with only 10 mins of prep time (exactly opposite to the Pistachio Loaf Cake that I baked sometime back) is something that I am in awe about even now.

Wondering how do these Eggless Dates and Walnut Loaf Cake tastes?

Like I said its a soft and moist cake with soft crumbs.

The nuts add a great crunch and texture to the otherwise soft cake.

You literally won’t be able to point out that no maida has been used in here. Plus this does not have any added refined sugar and no butter!! Well, wait… is that even a cake then?

But yes it is. A must try cake especially if you have kids at home.

    Hi I tried the cake but my cake batter was much thicker than yours so I added some more milk to make it pouring consistency and the final result is my cake is cooked from the outside but still feels ease in the middle.please advice where did I go wrong I did measure the ingredients with a measuring cup n followed the receipe

    • sushma iyer says:

      Hi Jivika..

      How many dates did you add?? Also since you have added more liquid to the batter then it is advisable to bake the cake for a longer time than mentioned. Also, reduce the temperature if starts browning a lot at the time due to additional baking time or place a baking paper or foil on top of the cake to avoid the browning. And I hope you checked the cake with the help of a toothpick before removing it from the oven.

      Hope this helps dear. Thank you for reaching out

      Hi Sany

      So sorry to learn this..

      1.How many dates did you use?? And when you ground it to a paste along with milk was it thicker in consistency?
      2. And how long did you bake the cake and at what temperature?

      Asking so many questions just so that we can locate what went wrong as this has been tried by many with positive feedback. Thank you
