Dates Walnut Cake - Perfect Bite During Holy Month of Ramadan

Dates are considered as miracle fruit. They contain an impressive list of nutrients. Since, they are packed with a lot of minerals and vitamins, they should definitely be included in your diet. Not only they are a rich source of dietary fibre, they are also a rich source of iron and doctors often recommend them to women who have issues in their hemoglobin count.

It is the month of Ramadan and it is a custom in Islam to break the fast with few dates and water as it is considered auspicious. Also, since it is my first post during the holy month, I decided to write about this wonderful cake which can also be happily included during sehri or Iftar. Since, I have added dry fruits in them, they help you give instant energy. Cake is made in olive oil and flax seeds are also included to make it a wholesome healthy snack.

What You Need:

1 and half cup all purpose flour
1 egg
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp flax seed
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup seedless date
1 cup milk
1 tbsp chopped walnut
1 tbsp chopped cashew
1 tbsp chopped almonds

How to Bake :

Preheat oven to 180 degree centigrade for 10 minutes
Mix all the above ingredients and beat with an egg beater for approximately 10 minutes in one direction
Grease a bread tray
Pour the batter into it
Bake for about 35 minutes
Let it cool down completely before you demould and cut it.
