Egg-less Date and Walnut Cake

My younger one is nut outside!

She does not like nuts in her cakes hence nut outside!!

But this is one cake she likes because of the coffee in the cake.

But my husband likes it a lot. In fact I have to stop him many times  from buying dates so that this cake is made again and again.

But inspite of having made it so many times I have not liked the pictures, I think I need suggestions for pictures!

Hi! First time here? Well then you are Most Welcome! I hope you keep coming back for more here. If you are my regular visitor then Thanks, for you encourage me to experiment more!! I would like you to please click on my link below and like my Facebook Page. I will be happy if you can follow me on on Twitter too!



  1. Archana, first picture looks good. You could try clicking one slice in a round plate or square. Though I prefer round. OR you could click the full cake minus a slice. This shows the cake and also the texture of the cake, since a slice is cut from it. Hope this helps and these are the suggestions you were looking for.

  2. they are looking sooo good!!! so moist, soft and so delicious!!

  3. What a delicious cake with dates and coffee. As for the clicks, goi vertical, stack 2~3 pieces on a small plate and then try a front view click. Also, like Usha said, take a pic of the whole cake.

  4. The cake looks so soft and moist.

  5. moist and soft cake,yummY!
