This is a very easy cake to make, needs no electric mixer, and can be served warm just after baking. I combined recipes, added extra ingredients and prepared it my way, to end up with this mouth-watering cake, which is completed by drizzling it with a yummy caramel sauce, and topped with some coarsely chopped walnuts.
Put dates and 1 cup boiling water in a sauce pan and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 5minutes. Add Baking Soda, mix and set aside for 15-20 to cool down.
Meanwhile, in mixing bowl, add flour+ oats+ sugar+ baking powder+ salt+ spices. Mix and set aside.
In a pitcher or deep bowl, beat well eggs with vanilla extract with a fork or a whisk. Add oil+ milk butter and mix well again.
Add liquid mixture to flour mixture and mix with a fork. Add dates mixture and mix well till all ingredients are combined.
Transfer cake mix to greased and floured baking tray (any shape you like). Bake in preheated oven, start with 495F (240C) and reduce gradually to reach 375F (180C) after 7minutes. Continue baking for another 25-30minutes or till toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let cool down for 10minutes before removing from baking tray. When cool, drizzle with caramel sauce over cake and top with chopped walnuts.
To prepare caramel sauce: mix butter+ sugar in sauce pan for few minutes till butter melted and well combined. Add cream, bring to boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 2minutes.
