Eggless Christmas Cake Recipe
How to make Eggless Christmas Cake
Step 1 Blend the dates
Add dates to a bowl. Add 1 cup warm milk and let them soak for 15 minutes. Add dates along with milk to a blender. Blend to form a thick paste.
Step 2 Mix the ingredients
Add the date paste to a large bowl. Add oil, curd and use an electric whisker to mix the ingredients together. Keep whisking until you get a smooth mixture.
Step 3 Sift the dry ingredients
Now keep a sieve in the bowl and add wheat flour. Also, add baking powder and baking soda. Sift the dry ingredients into the bowl. Now use the cut and fold method to mix them well with the rest of the ingredients. Add 1/2 cup warm milk and again mix well to get a smooth batter.
Step 4 Add dates and walnuts
Now add 6-8 chopped dates and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts to the batter. Give a final mix.
Step 5 Bake the cake
Pour the batter into a rectangular tin lined with parchment paper or greased properly with oil. Bake the cake for 45 minutes at 180 degrees Celcius.
Step 6 Ready to be served
Once baked, take it out from the oven, let it cool down properly. Cut the cake into pieces and serve.
