Honeyed Dates and Carrot Cake8:07 AM
Date cakes are one of my obsessions, never get tired of having them, it's my all time favourite. It's taste is simply irresistible. I had honeyed dates that was gifted to my lil princess from his office and it was too sweet for me just to have it like that, so what perfect excuse to make the date cake :)!!
Without much pondering, here comes the recipe in your way.
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar (you can reduce depending on your sweet teeth ^__^)
1 cup honeyed dates
1 cup grated carrot
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or oil
In your Kitchen Aid or Kenwood or whatever brand you have ^__^ using the "K" beater mix all the ingredients together. beat on low for 2 mins and then on high speed another 2 mins.
Pour the cake batter in the prepared baking tin, bake at 180 degrees for one hour or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes on a wire rack.
You can also add in few chunks of dates as well as raisins if you like. Here's my cake I always enjoy it with a glass of milk for my early morning breakfast :)!!
Till next time, take care...
