“A recipe I started making for my Muslim friends for when they celebrate Eid, and I was able to share with my Sikh grandmother who is vegetarian and doesn't eat eggs. I got the original recipe from an Indian cooking blog, but modified it to the recipe I currently use below. Now it's my most requested cake no matter what the occasion! Delicious on its own, with a cup of tea, or warmed up and topped with vanilla ice cream!”

Original recipe yields 1 loaf

Directions

  1. Heat milk in a saucepan until almost boiling and stir in dates; let soak for several hours, refrigerated. For best flavor, refrigerate dates and milk overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a medium loaf pan.
  3. Transfer milk and dates to food processor, add brown sugar, and process into a smooth paste. Mix in vegetable oil and vanilla extract with a few pulses.
  4. Whisk flour, baking soda, and cinnamon in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Pulse flour mixture, about 1/4 cup at a time, into the date paste until batter is smooth; do not overmix. Stir walnuts into batter with a fork and transfer to the prepared loaf pan.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes.

The cake could have been better if butter used instead of oil but the colour would be very beautiful because of brown sugar and dates.The cake comes out okay

I read some where that when baking soda is used there must be either lamon juice or curd and generally for baking cake baking powder is used which acts with hot liquid. yeast is generally used for bread making where the smell is not an issue. yeast, baking soda and baking powder has the same function of creating carban dioxide in the dau to expand it during cooking operation. Can you throw some light on this?
