Ingredients to make 2 small loaves
All Purpose Flour/Maida: 4 cups(I used 2 1/2 cups maida and 1 /2 cups wheat flour) Granulated Sugar: 3/4 cup Lion Dates Syrup: 3/4 cup(Instead adding another 3/4 cup sugar, I added this) Walnuts and Cashew: 1/2 cup (coarsely chopped) Baking Powder: 4 tsp Salt: 1/2 tsp Flax Seed Meal: 2 tsp Warm Water: 1/2 cup Orange Juice: 1 cup(freshly squeezed is better) Vegetable Oil: 1/2 cup(I used Sunflower refined oil) Applesauce: 1/2 cup
1. Preheat oven to 180 degree C and grease the loaf pan. 2. In a bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. 3. Add sugar and nuts to the dry mixture and combine. 3. Whisk/blend together the flax seed meal and water until white and foamy.I(I whisked for almost 5 minutes, but it did not turn foamy, anyway I used it.) 4. In another large bowl, mix together the flax seed mixture, orange juice, oil, dates syrup and applesauce. 5. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just blended. 6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. 7. Cool it before serving.
