Monday, September 27, 2010
Well i was browsing stuff over the internet. This is a Sanjeev kapoor recipe and i added my version of the caramel sauce to it and contradicted it with vanilla ice cream and it turned out to be great!! And since i love dates i couldn't stop myself from making it. It was a simple one indeed !!

You will need :

This is how i made the cake :

2. Take dates in a bowl and add the baking soda and a cup of boiling water and set aside for the dates to soften.
3. In another bowl blend together butter and brown sugar till soft and fluffy.
4. Add the vanilla extract and mix well.
5. Add the eggs and blend till it mixes real well.
6. Add in the flour and the dates along with the water and blend well.
7. Pour the batter into a baking pan and bake for 50-60 min / till the skewer comes out clean.
8. Cool and cut into pieces.

And the caramel Sauce :

Simmer and cook for 3 minutes
