Are You One of Those Who Don't Take Cakes with Eggs Simply Because You Are Health Conscious, Vegetarian or Allergic To It? Try This Simple and Easy to Make Eggless Kurma (Date) Cake

Are you health conscious?  Do not favor eggs, allergic to it or just being a vegetarian?  Love cakes but most commercial cakes have eggs? Fret not! You still can savour your favorite cakes with this simple and easy to make eggless cake.  Besides, it's cheap too if you make it yourself.

Honestly speaking, I have never eaten eggless cakes and when I chanced upon Eggless Cakes & Cookies cookbook by Jamie Jong, and out of curiosity, I just bought the book.  After looking through some of the recipes in the book, I told hubby that all the recipes are actually quite healthy.  Hubby asked me to try one of the recipes and without any hesitation, I chose the easiest recipes and modified it accordingly.  As I still have some kurma (dates) bought during this Ramadan month, I decided to use some. However, after the cake is baked, the slices of kurma sunk to the bottom. Ah... no big deal anyway.  Surprisingly, the cake is moist, soft and fluffy! 

Eggless Kurma Cake
Ingredients :
- 250gm self-raising flour (sifted)
- 170gm unsalted butter (softened)
- 100gm castor sugar

2) Then, gradually add evaporated milk and beat well.
3)  Fold in sifted flour.
4)  Stir in kurma and mix well.
5)  Pour mixture into a greased 7" cake tin.
