Vegan Date Cake



I love dates. And I also like cakes. When I saw Date
cake
, one of the most popular recipes in Shilpa's
blog, I wanted to try it.

I really don't remember the number of times I have
baked this delicious cake, from past couple of months.
This is a very easy recipe to veganize. Just use soy
milk ,instead of dairy milk. Like Shilpa,
I also don't soak the dates, as I use seedless dates
to make this cake. Once I used turbinado sugar to make
Date cake. The color of the cake was so beautiful!

I somehow could not manage to get a good picture of
this delicious cake, even though I took numerous
pictures. I wanted to frost this cake as I had tofutti
cream cheese
. As I was frosting for the first
time, with loads of excitement, I started frosting
the cake when the cake was still warm. The frosting
looked horrible, but it tasted great!

Don't judge this recipe by seeing the horrible picture
of the cake. Try this recipe, and I'm sure you
will be baking this cake often.

I'm submitting this recipe to (AFAM) A fruit a month hosted by
Chandrika of AkshayaPatra

I love dates--and cakes--too. I think it looks just marvy.

That looks so yummy! Dates are so awesome. I wonder if that makes the cake really sweet, though?

Cynthia said...

Do the dates make the cake very sweet?

Bonnie said...

Actually, I don't think that looks horrible at all! Mmm, I think that frosting is a really nice touch to the cake.

Kumudha said...

Sarajane and Cynthia,
No, the dates don't make this cake very sweet. It has a wonderful taste!

You should try it!
