Tips to prepare healthy eggless date and walnut cake
- Baking time depends on your convection. The cake has to be baked for 35-40 minutes at 180 degrees. We suggest you remain alert after 30 minutes.
- You may bake for a few more minutes if cake is not ready after the mentioned baking time.
- Either grease the tin with oil/butter and dust it with flour. Second way is to spread oil/butter and then line it with parchment paper/baking sheet and again apply oil/butter on the paper.
- All the ingredients to be used, should be at room temperature.
- If you like more nuts in your cake, you can also add chopped almonds and cashews to the batter as well.
