Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Grate the carrots as finely as possible and chop the dates.
  2. Sift flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon powder together and ensure that there are no lumps in the mixture.
  3. Crack the eggs into a large bowl, add the sugar and the oil. Stir until mixed.
  4. Add the grated carrots and chopped dates. Mix well.
  5. Add the flour mixture, little by little, until well combined. Add the vanilla essence.
  6. Pour the cake batter into a cake pan. I used a 9 ” by 9″ square pan.
  7. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool completely.
  8. As the cake is very soft and moist, set the cooled cake in the fridge for a few hours before slicing it – to avoid crumbling.
