Steamed Dates Cake

Makes 2 20cm cakes

I had dates left overs from the Ramadhan month, that’s quite a while. It turned out that my family is not very fond of dates as a break fast sweet dish. We prefer pudding or agar with some fresh canned food. My mother gave me a magazine with very easy cakes recipes. As I scroll, I saw a recipe to make steamed prune cakes. Oh well, prunes and dates are almost alike so let’s turn these dates into some steamed cakes.

Ingredients:
250 gr butter
230 gr all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
230 gr castor sugar
5 tbs sweetened condensed milk
3 large eggs
1 cup dates
1/2 cup boiling water

How to prepare:
– tear the dates and chopped into small pieces, add into a bowl
– add boiling water to the dates, set aside
– sieve all purpose flour add into a bowl with baking powder, set aside
– with an electric mixer, mix the butter and sugar until fluffy
– add the sweetened condensed milk, keep mixing
– add the eggs one by one, keep mixing
– add the dates, keep mixing
– add the flour, keep mixing
