Dates and Apple Cake

Plain flour 1 cup
Sugar 1/2 cup
Fresh Dates 1/2 cup (can be altered)
Apples 2 chopped
Egg 1
Baking powder 1/2 tsp
Baking soda 1/2 tsp
Butter 1/4 cup
Salt a pinch
Demera sugar 2 tbsp

1.Soak dates in warm water for 10 minutes and make a fine paste in the mixer.

2.Mix all the dry ingredients.

3.Beat egg until fluffy and add butter,mix thoroughly.

4.Slowly add egg and dates paste to the flour and mix thoroughly.

5.Add chopped apples and just mix it,don't over do as apples gets mashed in the batter.

6.Spoon the mixture into the tin (baking tin should be buttered and dusted with flour).

7.Sprinkle demara sugar and bake for 60 minutes at 200 degrees.

This cake retains moisture for about 3-4 days.It can be made eggless as well.I made both with egg and without egg and there is not much difference in the taste.
The combination of dates and the apple pieces are awesome.
