Thanks for the support and wishing all the readers happy new year! Have a wonderful & prosperous new 2013!

Would like to end wonderful year with a healthy cake!

When I saw the recipe at http://www.spicytreats.net/2012/12/dates-cake-eggless-dates-cake-dates.html I couldn't wait to try it out. It is so easy and healthy. I have added slight modification to the original recipe. Addition of Coconut flakes gave a nice flavour. Also I have reduced the sugar to 1/4 Cup as dates sweet was good enough for me.
Ingredients

Whole Wheat flour-1 and 1/4  cup
All Purpose flour-1/4 cup
Coconut flake - 1 Cup
Baking Soda - 2 tsp

Salt -1/4 tsp

Method
·     Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit. Line a 8" loaf pan with parchment paper n spray some cooking/baking spray and keep aside.In a microwave safe bowl heat 1/2 cup milk for 1 minute and add dates to it and leave it till the dates get soften, after that blend it to a smooth puree along with that milk and keep ready.
      In a bowl, sift flours, Coconut flakes, soda, baking powder n salt, combine and keep aside.
      In another mixing bowl, add milk, sugar stir using whisk until sugar dissolves and then add oil, vanilla and dates puree and mix everything well.
