Eggless Dates Cake

I was planning to go home for my parent's anniversary. My mom is a big admirer of dates. It's a must in her pantry. So I decided to make something out of them for their anniversary. She normally prepares halwa and payasam out of it. So, I had decided on dates cake, something which she hasn't tried yet. Thanks to Hetal and Anuja's recipe . Mom and dad loved my cake and asked me to prepare it again (for an amateur baker its a big compliment :) ). Lets get started.

What I used:

Dates – 100g approx 20-25
Sweetened Condensed Milk – 400g
Unsalted Butter – 115g
Baking Soda – 1 1/2 tsp
Baking Powder – 1 tsp
All-purpose Flour – 200g

How I did:

1. Soak the Dates in warm water to soften them.
2. Sift the All Purpose Flour along with the Baking Powder and the Baking Soda. Avoid lumps
3. Make a paste of the Dates using as little water as possible
4. Melt the butter and mix it with flour, baking soda & baking powder. Add the dates and sweetened milk and mix well.
5. Grease a baking pan and pour the batter into it.
6. Preheat your oven at 180 degree and bake for 40 min.
7. Once done, take the cake out and allow it to stand for 5 minutes before taking it out of the pan.

How it looked:
