How are you everyone? It's been ages since I wrote my last post. I have been extremely busy with moving home and with my work, I hardly had spare time to write a blog post. I missed all your lovely posts.
Today I am going to share with you sugar-free date cake I made for my diabetic father-in-law. I think dates have their own sweetness but not adding extra sugar in a cake is ideal for diabetic patient. Not only my father-in-law but the whole family loved this cake.
I cut the cake into cubes (it was my husband's idea) which was ideal to serve with tea or coffee. I hope you'll enjoy.
- 100g butter
- 2 eggs
- 10-12 dates, cut into small pieces
- 1 cup self-raising flour
- 3 tablespoon milk powder (for milky flavour)
- 3-4 tablespoon milk for thinning the batter (optional)
- Preheat oven at 180C.
- Grease your non-stick cake pan with butter or margarine.
- Melt butter in a saucepan. As the butter starts melting, remove from heat.
- Add eggs and mix well.
- Add flour and dates and mix well.
- Pour the mixture into a cake pan. I used a bread pan so that it would be easier to cut into cubes.
- Bake it for around 35-40 minutes.
- To test if the cake is ready to be taken out, pierce a toothpick or a fork and see if it comes out clean. If not, put it back into the oven for 5 more minutes and repeat the test.
- Cool the cake and cut it into cubes for easy serving.
