Soak dates in ¼ cup of warm water. After 10 minutes discard the seed and grind it to smooth paste along with sugar. Sieve maida and cooking soda twice. Add milk and oil in a vessel and add dates paste and mix well with a whisk. Then add maida little by little and mix thoroughly without lumps. Grease the baking tray with oil, ghee or butter and dust the flour. Add the cake mixture in the prepared tray. Preheat the oven 160 degree for about 10 minutes. Bake the cake for 20 minutes.
