Healthy eggless cake

Dates are used in this cake .Dates are rich in iron & fibre. So dates aid in digestion as also in improving hemoglobin content of blood. Hence, for those who suffer from iron deficiency,  dates are a helpful snack. Dates help in purifying blood as well.

The recipe is from the blog "Santosh's Kitchen ".

I tweaked it a little. And my recipe is as under ..

Ingredients : 1.5 cups whole wheat flour,1/2 cup oil,1 cup dates,1 ripe banana,1.25 to 1.5 cups milk,1.5 tsp baking soda,a few almonds & pistachios ( grated ).

Method : Sieve flour & baking soda together.Add milk & mix thoroughly -if 1.25 cup milk is less,make it 1.5 cups milk.The batter must have drop down consistency.Make paste  of dates by  immersing dates in milk & crushing them once they turn soft.Add a mashed ripe banana to the milk,flour date mixture.Now add oil.Mix well.Lastly, add the grated dry fruits & mix well.

Grease a dish with oil & pour the cake mixture into the greased dish.Microwave on high  without lid, in  the greased dish for 7 minutes.Allow the cake to stand in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

Take out the dish after that.Again, allow it to cool for 15-20 minutes outside.Now turn the dish upside down on a plate.The cake will come on to the plate.Cut into desired shapes & serve .
