Eggless Dates & Nuts Bread - How to Make Bread in Pressure Cooker


Ever since i saw this recipe, i was just hooked to it. I wanted to make it for sure..Because i love bread which has nuts and dates in them. Finally i decided a day to make this cake and i got all the ingredients on hand. I made the batter and when i poured it into the loaf pan, the power got cut. What will i do, thank god for the pressure cooker. I used that to bake this cake and it turned out perfect.

This bread was so moist, plus the sweetness from the dates was so good and the crunchyness from the almonds was lovely. Totally this bread is so healthy and taste great with a cup of coffee or chai.


Give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you..



Preparation Time : 10 mins
Baking Time : 1 hour
Other Time : 30 mins (cooling or resting)
Makes : 8 to 10 slices
Recipe Source : Enveetukitchen

Ingredients:

All Purpose Flour / Maida - 2 cup / 240 grams
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Oil - 1/4 cup / 60 ml
Sugar - 1/2 cup / 100 grams
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Dates - 1 cup chopped into small pieces
Almonds / Badam - 1/2 cup (use any nuts) chopped
Flax Seed Meal or Powder - 1 tblspn
Water - 1 1/4 cup / 300 ml

Method:

Prepare a loaf pan by greasing it with oil and dusting it with flour. Refer this post for detail pics.

Take water in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil. Now pour 1/4 cup of water over flax seed meal and mix well. Set aside.

Now pour the remaining 1 cup of water over chopped dates, add in some baking soda and mix well. Set aside till it gets cold.

Now preheat the oven to 180 Degree C. If using pressure cooker for baking this, refer this post.

Now take oil, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and mix well. 

Add the flaxseed mix and beat well.

Add in half the flour mix and fold gently. Add in the dates mix and the remaining flour mix. Fold gently.

Now fold in the chopped almonds and mix gently.

Pour this into a prepared loaf pan and bake it in a pressure cooker for 1 hour. If you are baking it in oven bake it for 50 mins to 1 hour.

Check by inserting a tooth pick and see. If the tooth pick comes out clean then it is done.

Remove it and let it cool for 15 mins in the pan. Invert it and allow it to cool completely. Slice and serve.

Fold it gently

fold well..the batter will be little on the thicker side
