EGGLESS DATES AND WALNUT CAKE
          After a super hit of my Eggless Orange Cake from Pratibha’s space i bookmarked her eggless dates cake and this is the second time i am making this. This i made for my hubby’s birthday ,as he is a great lover of dates and nuts, without any second thought i baked this for him. We all enjoyed this very much and thanks Prathiba for the recipe. As today is my co-sister’s Birthday I am posting thought i can give her a visual treat.  For original recipe Click Here.

I too have made this cake a couple of times, first time it was disaster but second attempt was fairly successful. The cake looks dense and flavourful.

@banu, I have replaced oil instead of butter and vice versa in my banana muffins recipe. They turned out nice. I think this will also turn out good. just try it out.

Hi.. how long i can store this in room temperature.. planning to go to india will it stay for 2days??

Reply
jeyashri suresh June 2, 2016 - 5:18 am

Yes 2 days in room temperature in a air tight box will do. Allow the cake to completely cool and then put it in the container. Ensure that you use dry hands while handling the cake
