Date and Nut Tarts

Okay people, here is a simply delicious, personally tested recipe of Date and Nut Tarts. Basically if you have a plain cake that's gone old and hard, you can grind it into crumbs and use those in making these mouthwatering eatables.

What you will need:

  • eggs 3

  • bread crumbs/cake crumbs 2 cups

  • sugar 3/4 cup

  • oil 3/4 cup

  • baking powder 1/2 tsp

  • vanilla essence 4 drops

  • dates 3/4 cup (chopped)

  • Walnut 3/4 cup (cut big)


Take the three eggs, separate the yolk from the egg white. Beat the egg whites until bubbles appear. Now add sugar and yolk. Beat more. When the sugar is mixed well, add vanilla essence and baking powder. While doing so, gradually add oil as well. Beat some more. When the material has softened, stop the beater. Now add crumbs, dates and walnuts. Mix with a spoon.

Pour the mixture into the oiled baking tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 180 *C. Yummy Date and Walnut tarts are ready. Quick to make, perfect for tea. :)

Note: There is no suggested garnishing for this recipe, you may do the final finishing of the look with a knife, to make the tarts look more presentable.
