Dates and Walnut Cake

Dates on Foodista
Dates are a powerhouse of nutrients. And if u dont how to add them to your daily, here is a simple and sweet version..
I am sending this to Microwave Potluck party September edition hosted by Srivalli @ cooking4all seasons.

18 Fresh dates seedless
¾ cup Milk
¾ cup Sugar
1 cup Maida
½ cup Refined oil
1 tsp Baking soda
1 Tbsp Cashews
50 g Walnuts
1 Tbsp Blanched almonds

Soak dates in warm milk for 6-7 hours.

Add sugar and grind to fine paste with the milk. Add oil to this and mix well.
Seive maida and baking soda together in a seperate bowl. Add flour mixture to the dates syrup and mix well.
Add nuts and keep blanched almonds for decorating the base of the tin or the top of the cake. Pour mixture to a greased tin. Bake in microwave for 8-10 mts on high power.
Let it cool. Serve straight away or drizzled with chocolate syrup on top.
