Once it boils remove from heat. Add and stir the baking powder set aside for 10 minutes.
Blend until almost smooth. Cool for 10 minutes.
Sift the cocoa (if using), self-rising flour.
Beat the butter and sugar till light and fluffy in a large bowl.
Add the curds and beat well.
Stir in the sifted flour, the dates mixture and the chocolate and the cashew nuts. reserve a few of the chocolate and cashew nuts for the top.
Transfer to a batter to the mould. Tap sharply on the platform to get rid of any air bubbles. Add the chocolate and cashew nuts on top.
Bake in the oven 25 minutes or till done. The best test, I feel, is when the skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
Transfer the mould on the rack. Let it stand for 10 minutes then remove the cakes from the mould
Make your own self-rising flour: 1 Cup Maida or all-purpose flour + 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder + ½ teaspoon salt.
Add 3 eggs if you want to make it with eggs.
