Eggless Dates and Walnut Cake

I am strict vegetarian, in the sense I don't use eggs at all in my cooking.
So I do a lot of baking for my family without eggs and I do experiment with them.
Note down in my recipe book, when it turns out good.
This recipe I am not sure where I got it from, but always with this measurement, it has turned out great.
Here after I will try to post some of my fool proof eggless baking recipes.

Dates - 20-25,
Walnuts - 1/4 cup(roughly chopped),
Maida or Plain flour - 11/4cups,
Butter - 130 gms,
Baking Powder - 1 tspn,
Baking Soda - 11/2 tspn,
Sweetened Condensed Milk - 400 gms.

Preheat oven at 180 degree Celsius.
Seive together  maida or plain flour, baking soda and baking powder.
Deseed the dates and soak in warm water for 30-40 minutes.
Drain the water from the dates, grind it to smooth paste(without water).
Mix the ground dates with plain flour.
Add melted butter(microwave for a minute).
Add condensed milk. Mix well.
Add chopped walnuts and mix well.
Pour the mixture to a greased baking tin.
Bake it for 40-45 minutes until the skewer or toothpick, when inserted comes out clean.
Cool it on a wire rack.
Serve with coffee or tea for a evening snack.
