Date cake - eggless

Ingredients : 1 Cup maida,1 cup deseeded dates,1 cup milk,4 teaspoons ghee,1/2 cup sugar,1/2 tsp eating soda.

Method :Soak the dates in milk for 1 hr or till they become soft.Mix them together in a mixer .Add maida & again mix all -milk,dates , maida & ghee.You  can add dry fruit pieces (optional ).Take an aluminium vessel Grease it on the inside & powder the inside with little maida.Now pour the cake mixture into it.Add soda & mix .

Put the aluminum dish containing the cake mixture in a rice cooker - without the rubber ring & whistle. Put the gas on & cover with cooker lid.Keep gas on high for 5 minutes & then keep it on low  .In 15 minutes,you  will get the aroma of  baked cake. Just put off the gas.Take out the vessel & allow it to cool. You  can check by inserting a knife in the cake. If the knife comes clean,the cake is ready.

A TIP : You  can add less sugar as dates have a deep sugary taste.

In case ,making the cake in microwave oven,please microwave on high for  7-8  minutes.Keep the cake in the microwave after the baking is over till it cools down -about 10 minutes. Then put a knife in the cake.If it comes out clean ,the cake is done.Now,put it upside down on a plate.Cut it with  a knife into squares.

Remember no water in the cooker - .preferably an aluminum cooker.
