               For Muslim Food Bloggers group challenge, this month’s theme is ” Cooking with Dates” – where dates is used as a core ingredient… In my draft, I already had an Eggless Dates Cake which I had prepared when my hubby completed a challenge in learning something he was always passionate about, Alhamdulillah… So I am sharing Dates Cake for this month’s challenge….

1/4 tsp salt
1 cup dates, finely chopped
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 tsp mixed spice (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degree celcius. Grease and flour the baking pan and keep it aside.
  2. In a bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt and keep it aside.
  3. In a pan , add chopped dates, sugar, spice powder, vegetable oil and water and mix well.
