Hello dear mommies!!
Just to break from the monotony of all the mommy gyan, here is a simple and quick recipe for a yummy dessert
Eggless Carrot and Date cake
- 1cup pitted and chopped dates
- 1/2 cup grated carrot
- 1cup warm milk
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup powdered sugar ( depends on how sweet the dates are)
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1cup all purpose flour/maida
- 1tsp baking powder
How to make….
Let the chopped dates soak in the warm milk for about 10mins.
Pre heat the oven.
In the meantime, sift the flour and baking powder together 3 times.
Then add the grated carrot and sugar to the dates+milk and *beat well.
Add the oil and *beat again
Now add the sifted flour little by little and beat well till you get a smooth mixture
Grease the cake mould with little butter and sprinkle some flour so that the baked cake doesnt stick to the bottom and comes out clean
Pour the mixture into the mold and bake for about 15-20 mins. You can use a fork to prick in the centre of the cake , if it comes out clean then your cake is DONE!!
Turn off and let the cake remain in the oven for 5 mins before you remove it .
Options: if you have cupcake moulds and liners, you can pour till about 3/4th of the cup and let it bake for 10mins. Cupcakes get done faster ..
* For beating and mixing the cake mix, you can use an electric hand held mixer to make it convenient.
