Date Loaf

Date Loaf

Few days back I came across this Eggless Date cake & tried it out with a few modifications. It tasted amazing. Here’s the modified recipe:


Dates – 20 numbers ( I had used Tunisian dates that are very sweet)

Milk – 3/4 cup + 1/8 cup

Granulated sugar – 1/2 cup

Canola oil – 1/4 cup ( Please don’t use any other flavoured oil like corn oil)

Vanilla essence – 1/4 tsp

Egg – 1, large

All purpose flour – 1 cup

Cocoa powder – 1 tsp

Baking soda – 1 tsp

Salt – a pinch

Chopped walnuts – 1 tbsp


Heat the milk & soak the dates in the hot milk for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 180C. Line a loaf tin with parchment paper & grease it.

Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda & cocoa powder.

Grind the dates & sugar using the milk in which you had soaked the dates to a smooth paste. Keep aside.

Beat the egg very well; add the oil & the ground dates mixture. Mix well & fold in the sifted flour & chopped nuts.

Transfer the batter to the greased loaf tin. Bake in the preheated oven at 180C for 35 – 40 minutes.

Let cool for 10 minutes in the loaf tin before inverting the cake on to a rack for cooling completely.

    Yum! I use dates for a lot of things, but would have never thought to use them in bread.
