I have a special love for baked goods with Dates.After all,my first bake was this Eggless dates cake which I must have baked like a hundred times.It is one of my amma's fave cakes and I make sure I pack some for her whenever I am going to my hometown.I have been planning to bake a Sticky Dates Pudding Cake with Caramel sauce and that is soon gonna feature here!!
I had some super soft,melt in the mouth Dates in my fridge for a while and the effort I put in to pit the whole batch made me a bit careful of what I did with them.Sometimes,when there's nothing sweet to have after lunch/dinner,I keep a few dates in a MW safe plate and MW for a minute or so.I close my eyes and relish the taste from the first bite to last..YUM!!
After reading Aparna's description about this Dates Cake from the famous bakery in Goa,I felt it was time to take out my Dates box.Since I am in a show off mode,I baked it in my Bundt pan.It takes me a while to photograph and slice the cake coz I am so immersed in enjoying the beauty of the cake when baked in a Bundt pan!!!
I used Almonds instead of Walnuts,but otherwise,did not make any changes.
