Eggless Dates Cake

Here is another recipe from Shilpa’s ‘Aayis Recipe’. This is one of the best cakes I have every made. The best part about this cake is its vegan and puffs up very well even without egg. I have made this many times for my family. The first time I made it I used ground nut oil as that was the only type of oil I had at hand and the cake smelt bad. Always use refined sunflower oil or canola oil to make this. You can also add walnut and chopped dates to make a walnut cake (This reminds me of the walnut cake from the famous Major Bakery of Goa).

Here is the link for the original recipe –

Thanks to Shilpa of Aayis Recipe.


10 dates(Khajoor),

3/4 cup milk,

3/4 cup sugar,

1 cup all purpose flour or maida ,

1/2 cup oil,

1 tsp baking soda,


Soak the dates in warm milk for 3 to 4 hours.

Remove the seeds. Add sugar and grind them to a smooth paste along with the milk in which it is soaked in.

Add oil and mix.

Sieve together flour and baking soda. Add the flour one table spoon at a time and mix slowly.

Preheat the oven at 175C. Bake the cake in a greased oven proof dish for 35-40min (or till a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean).
