Date & Walnut Bundt#BundtBakers

I don't remember my father baking for us. Only when my mummy would be ill, my dad would go into kitchen and cook for us something that was the easiest, omelette and fried bananas, then he would cut plenty of fruits and keep them for us to enjoy for lunch on that day only. For the rest of the days and meals when mummy was in bed my aunt would come and cook for us. As such my father never cooked in the kitchen. 
This is one of my dad's favorite cake. My dad must have something to with his evening tea. This is delicious enough on it's own and requires no frosting.

225 Grams Seedless Dates - chopped
½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
100 Ml Warm Water
85 Grams Butter
115 Grams Caster Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
115 Grams All Purpose Flour
2 Eggs - separated
¾ Teaspoon Baking powder
60 Grams Walnuts - chopped

Soak the dates overnight in warm water mixed with baking  soda.
Separate the eggs - yolks and whites. Whisk the whites till stiff and keep aside.
Cream butter and sugar well till light and fluffy. Add the yolk one at a time and beat it well then add the other and beat that well. Add in the essence and mix well. Now fold in the flour alternating with the dates and walnuts. When all the flour and dates and walnuts are incorporated then gently fold in the whites. 
Pour this in a greased and floured bundt pan and bake in a preheated oven 150°C for about 30 - 35 minutes. 
Let it cool for 10 minutes.
Then un mold and
let it cool completely on a wire rack.
Slice & Enjoy !!

  1. Really a nice blog. Nice blog on food related topics till now i found

  2. This is the perfect tea or coffee cake with those dates and nuts.

  3. Love that you have dates and walnuts in this lovely teacake, Sneha. It would be perfect with a cup of tea! I can see why it's one of your dad's favorites. When I was growing up my father never baked either and the only cooking he ever really did was outside on the grill. Nowadays he'll sit in the kitchen and keep me company while I cook though and that's good enough!

  4. Thanks for sharing this recipe will try soon at home
