INGREDIENTS

2 cups seedless dates soaked overnight in 1 cup boiling water.

1 cup jaggery powder or brown sugar

1/2 cup oil (olive oil/vegetable oil)

2 cups flour

2 eggs

3/4 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp.baking powder

1 tsp allspice powder

1/2 cup baking powder

1 tblsp yoghurt/curd

few walnuts

METHOD

I  used the mixer for mixing all ingredients except flour and nuts.

First blend the dates to a coarse paste,add the chocolate powder,yoghurt,oil, allspice

powder and eggs and  blend for 5 minutes.

Mix the flour,baking powder,baking soda,together and fold into the date mixture till well

corporated.

Pour the batter into a  greased tray and bake in a moderate oven for 30 minutes or untill

done.

For the icing

100 gm chocolate

1/4 cup cream

1/2 -3/4 cup jaggery/coconut sugar.(treacle can be used too)

Melt all in a double boiler and when the mix is silky ,poke holes with a skewer on the

cake and pour over the cake.

No refridgeration required to store.

For eggless cake

The same ingredients as above.Add 1/2 cup curd or yoghurt substituting egg.

 

 

ALMOND COCONUT SUGAR CAKE


This is a simple and easy recipe,but tastes awesome.

I have made this cake with almond flour,and a few teaspoons of white flour.

You could make this with pure almond flour too.

Coconut sugar was used for sweetness.

Coconut sugar considered to be low on calories( in comparison to the sugars we use )

naturally extracted from the sap of the coconut flower is being substituted for sweetness

nowadays.Though research is not proven fully ,it is said diabetics could opt for this sugar

( diabetics please do find out from your doctor).

Well,my try was really successful,as the cake tray was empty within minutes ,relieving

me of the hassle of transferring into a container.

So,do try it and send in your comments and suggestions
