Kids are having their Eid Holidays and theres always the need for snacks. So as a mother, I have to satisfy their sweet tooth at the same time, try to give something healthy. So this recipe is a healthy version of the normal tea cake.. and believe me, REALLY REALLY TASTY. Instant hit with both adults and kids.
I just couldnt stop at one and the good news is that its tooooo easy to whip up at a moments notice!!!!
Dates Chopped: 1 1/2 cups
Carrot Grated: 1/2 cup
Warm Milk: 1 cup
Vegetable Oil: 1/2 cup
Sugar: 3/4 cup
All Purpose Flour: 1 cup
Baking Powder: 1 tsp
Mix the chopped Dates with the warm milk and keep it aside.
Grate the carrot, Sift the flour and the baking powder thrice.
Preheat your oven.
Now in a bowl, pour the milk with the dates, the grated carrot, sugar and work your cake mixer at speed 3.
Now add the oil and again work your mixer at speed 3.
When all of it is mixed, add the flour little at a time and work the mixer on 1(or 2 if needed) till everything is mixed well.
Your batter is ready.. (see, I told u its very easy!!!!)
Now line a muffin tray with cupcake papers (If your are making for kids) or take a normal loaf pan and grease with butter and dust with flour.
Pour the batter (3/4 full)
Bake till done. (15 minutes for cupcakes, will take longer for loaf pan). But, Keep an eye, baking time varies from oven to oven.
Let it cool. Serve with love to your kids, guilt free.
