Dates Honey Butter less CakeHiiiiii Friends,
Hope you enjoyed yesterday's holiday very well reminding teaching of Great Gandhi Ji. Don't know what should i write about him, I think his name is enough to explain his character. A great personality. His three monkeys are world famous teaching us to stay away from all kind of bad things. Yesterday i was giving these lessons to my kids and trying to answer there endless questions.
Now to the recipe. Dates Cake, i wanted to make it since long. But in every recipe we were required to make puree of dates which was not possible for me. In other recipes i grate the ingredients required to puree but in this case i can't use this method. So i used my way to make them mushy and used my own ingredients and imagination and went ahead. Outcome was very soft, Spongy and tasty cake. I think here condense milk was not required. I feel so, i really don't know. But if we omit CM from it then it will be totally sugar less, butter less Healthy cake. Will try and let you know. Till then try it and enjoy.

- You can sieve boiled dates for uniform mixing, i like the tit bits of dates in cake.
- Add any of your favorite nuts or dry fruits in it.
- All ingredients were just perfect, no need to increase or decrease anything. If you feel it less sweet, add more honey or condense milk.
- Check cake after 20 min as baking time may differ in oven.
Hope you will like it
