Dates Cake | No Oven Cake


Dates Cake has been by far the best cake that I have ever eaten that tasted soo good even though it was not loaded with any frosting. Dates Cake is a traditional dark loaf cake typically made with plain flour mixed with dates and topped with nuts. it is generally made during Christmas celebrations but can also be served as an evening snack. It is generally made with plain flour but you can also use wheat flour as a healthy alternative. This is a simple Dates Cake with wonderful flavor. Dates Cake is a delight to bake. The recipe needs cooking of crushed dates before baking. Cooking of dates in caramelized syrup is what makes this No Oven Cake exotic. Dates provide that sweet chunky flavor that makes the cake irresistible. My kids love Dates Cake like anything.

Rich in dates and almonds, I love my family relishing on this lovely cake. Dates Cake can be easily prepared at home with simple ingredients. And the highlight is that it doesn’t require baking at all. This is a No Oven Cake and even newcomers and bachelors can give a try at the dish. I have baked lots of cakes in my lifetime but this one has won my heart. It will simply amaze your friends. The soft and moist texture accompanied with the dense caramel crumbled dates is what makes Dates Cake unique and special. Crushed Almond nuts are also added for that extra crunchiness. As an optional measure, you can also shower some chocolate chips on top of the batter. But I was in a mood for an original Dates Cake. Serve No Oven Cake for teatime and watch how it disappears off the plate. You get ultimate satisfaction when you see the pate wiped off. You can discover a well detailed Dates Cake recipe here.
