Pitted dates- 18 to 20
All purpose flour– 1 cup
oil- 1/2 cup (vegetable oil or olive oil)
Baking soda– 1 tsp
Walnut– 1/4 cup (optional)
Sugar-3/4 cup (powdered)
Soak dates in milk for 2-3 hours.(If using dry dates, you might have to soak it overnight) Blend dates and sugar until smooth. In a bowl add oil and blended mixture and mix well. Now add (sifted) all purpose flour, baking soda and walnuts (optional) slowly and mix well.(I used a hand blender and mixed for 3-5 minutes, scraping the sides often.)
Put the mixture into a 9 inch pan and bake for 35 – 40 minutes at 350°F or until a toothpick comes out clear when inserted into the cake.
