Multigrain Dates Cake (Using Palm Jaggery/karuppati), [No Eggs-No Sugar-No Maida]

No Eggs - No Sugar - No Maida

Dates Cake is the best and nutrition-rich cake and it tastes great too.When i was thinking about baking(probably monthly twice) cake or cookies,i wanted to use whole wheat flour in my recipes.Last time i bought multi-grain atta,so it happened to try with that flour.Initially i was very doubtfull with the texture,how it would be,but believe me,it turns too good in tastewise and also texturewise.I used palm jaggery and cardamom here,for a change/twist.The cake was moist and spongy,see the bottomside and sides of the cake in my pics(before cutting).

After 5mins of cooling time,My Little prince asked me for the cake without patience,so i cut the cake earlier.Those who hate Dates will admit themself for this cake.

Already i tried this cake long back by adding chopped nuts and chopped dates.When My Little Prince see the chopped dates in the cake,he said very big 'No' but the taste was soooo good.Me and My Man,friends enjoyed this.Now i grind all the dates into paste and on the top i garnish some broken cashews(his fav nut).This time he enjoyed eating this and said 'i love you' toooo.
