Egg-less Date and Walnut Cake
Egg-less Date and Walnut Cake

My younger one is nut outside!

She does not like nuts in her cakes hence nut outside!!

But this is one cake she  likes because of the coffee in the cake.
But my husband likes it a lot. In fact, I have to stop him many times  from buying dates so that this cake is made again and again.
But in spite of having made it so many times I have not liked the pictures, I think I need suggestions for pictures!

    Archana, first picture looks good. You could try clicking one slice in a round plate or square. Though I prefer round. OR you could click the full cake minus a slice. This shows the cake and also the texture of the cake, since a slice is cut from it. Hope this helps and these are the suggestions you were looking for.

    What a delicious cake with dates and coffee. As for the clicks, goi vertical, stack 2~3 pieces on a small plate and then try a front view click. Also, like Usha said, take a pic of the whole cake.

    Archana you have experts like Usha and Pavani to guide you on pics. I can tell that the recipe is good and the cake must be super hit . I love the addition of zest and coffee which make it different from my date and walnut cake.
