As the festive season approaches, we are more inclined towards baking cakes, cupcakes, cookies...but since they are loaded with sugars...I wanted to make them guilt-free! So here is an eggless sugar-free moist and delicious version of bundt style cake along with Date glaze.

If you have molasses you can replace 1/4 cup of date syrup in the recipe with molasses. Also, the addition of roasted fennel seeds and ginger powder makes it so aromatic and perfect for this cold festive season. My kitchen was filled with wonderful aromas from ginger, fennel, and date syrup. I recently came across this Einkorn All-purpose flour and wanted to substitute the regular All-purpose flour with it. Einkorn is nature's original wheat and has remaine
