Eggless Dates Oats Cake Recipe for Toddlers and Kids
- 3/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
- 3/4 cup Powdered Oats
- 20 Pitted Dates Chopped
- 3 tbsp Powdered Jaggery Optional
- Broken Walnuts - 1/4 cup
- 1.5 cups Milk
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 cup Olive oil/sunflower oil/odorless oil
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- Boil Milk in a pan until frothy
- Measure and take pitted chopped dates in a bowl. Add the hot milk to it. Soak it for at least 30 mins or until the dates are soft. Soaking time varies depends on the type of dates used
- Once the dates are soft, add the soaked dates along with little milk to a blender. Grind it to a smooth paste. You can reserve some dates to add in the cake batter as such
- Add the ground dates paste to a mixing bowl. Add in the remaining milk to it along with reserved soaked dates
- Add in oil and vanilla essence
- Stir it well with a hand whisk until the oil is mixed evenly. Place a sieve over the bowl. Sieve the whole wheat flour, baking powder, and baking soda
- Now add in powdered oats and jaggery
- Gently fold everything well for 10-15 seconds. Don't over mix. The final batter should be slightly thick and at pouring consistency. Adjust with milk to get the desired consistency if required. Finally, add in broken walnuts and give a quick mix
- Grease a cake pan with oil. Pour the mixture to the cake tin and gently tape it. Preheat the oven to 180 deg C for 10 minutes. Bake in the preheated oven at 180 deg C for 35 -40 minutes (baking time depends on the size of the cake pan and oven) at 180° Celsius till the toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool it down completely and cut into pieces!
- Soaking time varies depends on the type of dates used.
- Adding jaggery is optional. Add a few tbsp of it if you feel the dates are not sweet enough.
- If the final mixture is too thick after adding wheat flour oats mix, add a few tbsp of milk to get the desired consistency.
- Don't over mix after adding the dry ingredients, fold them for 10-15 seconds.
- This oats dates cake stays well for four days at room temperature and keeps good for a week if stored in the refrigerator.
- You could use any nuts of your choice instead of walnuts.
- Mixing and measurements are most important for the perfect cake.
