Eggless Dates and Semolina Cake

I was just thinking to prepare a delicious dessert for my family and this idea of semolina cake came to my mind. I tried it out and it turned out to be a super dessert on a weekend for my family. This Eggless Dates and Semolina Cake is a very simple recipe to make and hardly requires any special skill. I often make them as it is a demanding dessert at my home. Children love this dessert recipe and want to take them in their Tiffin boxes to school. This is a very delicious dessert recipe for the vegans to savor. Here I am sharing my simple and easy recipe of Eggless Dates and Semolina Cake.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 40 min
Yields: Depending upon the individual appetite

Ingredients for Eggless Dates and Semolina Cake

  • 120 grams Semolina (Rava or Sooji)
  • 100 grams chopped or blended Seedless Dates
  • 250 ml Milk
  • 55 grams Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Ghee
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • ½ tsp Cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 4 Cashew nuts broken into small pieces

How to make Eggless Dates and Semolina Cake

  1. Pre heat the oven at 180 degrees C.
  2. Take a pan and roast the semolina for near about 5 minutes. A nice aroma will come and then keep it aside.
  3. Now in a separate bowl add the granulated sugar, broken cashew nuts, cardamom powder, and baking powder and mix them all well.
  4. Add the roasted semolina to the above sugar mixture.
  5. Now add the ghee, milk and oil to the semolina mixture and mix everything well.
  6. Add the blended dates to the semolina and make sure everything is mixed well together.
  7. Keep this semolina mixture aside for about 10 minutes.
  8. Now bake on the pre-heated oven for about 30 minutes. Make sure you don`t bake it for so long, as the cake might become hard.
  9. Once baked check it by inserting a toothpick, if the toothpick comes out clean, the cake is done.
  10. Now let the cake cool down completely. Do not cut when the cake is not cooled as this might lead to uneven shapes of the slices.
  11. When completely cooled, cut the cake into slices and serve it.

      OMGosh, this Eggless Dates and Semolina Cake reminded me of my craving for cake yesterday. I promised myself to buy something at our nearest home-industry on my way home after work. But I bought a chocolate instead, and now I realize with a shock that I still crave a slice of cake. Oh, Susan, I better stock up the ingredients of your delicious recipes.... Your recipes are tempting and encouraging!
