Easy Date Nut Cake (Egg Free + Vegan)

Easy Date Nut Cake (Egg Free + Vegan)

Date Nut Cake is a very easy and yummy cake recipe. Even a beginner can make this cake easily. Recipe without eggs and vegan.
Date and nut cake has always been a favorite. At Christmas or Easter. We always bought the ready-made cakes from the bakeries. The egg-free nut coffee cake that I’ve wanted to make for so long. I had dates as well as nuts but never managed to bake a cake with them.
Finally I made this Date Nut Cake with No Eggs and it was so good. Now that I bake a lot, I’m also getting better at baking cakes. This recipe is not adapted from nowhere. I had earlier made a mango cake and chose it as the base to make this date nut cake. The same day I also made a fruit bread which was also great.
In addition to the date and nut flavors, I also added instant bru coffee. Cocoa nibs also entered the cake. Overall the cake was a delicious cake with a taste of coffee and chocolate.
