Carrot and Dates Cake (Without butter)

I’m not a big fan of carrot cake. But this super moist cake changed my mind. The combo of carrot, dates, and nuts make it a heaven! It’s a quite healthy cake, and easy to bake too. Inspired by Dates cake at Navya bakers in my hometown, Aluva. Adapted the recipe from Hope you will like it 🙂

Love this cake and the long cake tin! Makes the perfect slices. Sadly you only get the bread loaf tins here :'(
Will give this a shot soon!

Thanks Nandita :) I think it should be available in Blore. Check out JAMAL in Forum Value Mall and also IBCA's outlet.

I haunt Jamal's no luck so far :D
