Dates Delight / Dates Pudding Cake

         Anyone who likes dates will enjoy this rich date dessert... The recipe, which came out of my cousin's cookbook(Ramla M Iqbal), is one of my favorite dessert...This cannot be called a pudding since it stands hard as a cake from the outside..Cant be called a cake too, since its really soft, fluffy & moist from the inside like a pudding..So here it comes...its a perfect Pudding Cake...Rather its a Delight...!! 
 This is a fusion of dates with coconut & breadcrumbs...Will just love the combo.. 
 So lets read a bit info about Dates...
  • Selection of dates is very easy and you can have good ones if they appear fleshy and evenly coloured.
  • Helps in improving eye sight, specially night blindness. 
  • Helps increase one’s sexual stamina. 
  • Helps people suffering from constipation. Soak dates overnight and take it along with water to have added advantage.
  • Have high iron content and are very useful in treating anemia.
  • Have fluorine that slows down the process of tooth decay.
  • Help in lowering of the LDL cholesterol.
  • Great energy boosters as they contain natural sugars like glucose, sucrose and fructose. To get more advantage add dates to milk and make it a very nutritious snack.
  • Rich in vitamins and minerals.
