BM #93 Week 2 Day 3 - 

What is a birthday party without a cake, right? So I am sending this cake virtually to Srivalli's Kid's Delight Anniversary party. With this cake, I would have sent some savory scones and some bajjis too.

Hope the kid's delight virtual party is a grand success.
I made this cake for a friend's birthday party celebration at home and it was well liked by kids and adults alike.

Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1 cup
All purpose flour 1 cup
Baking powder 2 tsp 
Baking soda 1/2 tsp 
Salt 1/4 tsp 
Sugar 3/4 cup
Dates about 15-16
Canola oil/Vegetable oil 3/4 cup
Yogurt 1/2 - 3/4 cup 
Vanilla extract 1 tsp 
Chocolate chips 1/2 cup 
Chocolate Sauce and MnM's for topping

Method Of Preparation -

Sieve together the flours, baking powder, salt and baking soda into a mixing bowl.

In a blender blend together dates, sugar, oil, vanilla extract and yogurt into a smooth mixture.

Pour the dates mixture into a mixing bowl. Slowly add the flour and whisk well until there are no lumps. [Depending on the type of flour used, the batter may require more yogurt. Adjust as per need.]

Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

Grease and line a 6 inch cake tin and a mini 24-muffin tray [or a 13 inch rectangular cake pan].

Pour the batter into the cake tin and the muffin tray.

Bake the cake tin for 35-40 minutes and the muffins would be ready in about 15-18 minutes. Check with a toothpick for doneness.

[Baking times vary from oven to oven and also the type of cake tin. So keep that in mind while baking. the baking times given are what worked for me].

Upon cooling, pour the chocolate sauce on the cake and sprinkle the MnMs. Refrigerate until ready to slice the cake.


Preparation Time 15 minutes + 40 minutes baking time
