Method:

Preheat the Oven at 200 degrees for 10 minutes.
Grease a Cake tin with butter or oil and dust some flour and keep it aside.

Boil Milk and add chopped dates and cook for few minutes.
Cool the mixture and grind it to a paste.

Peel,chop and mash the bananas.If using big bananas,use 2.

Sieve and Mix all the flour,baking powder,baking soda and salt.

Melt Butter and let it cool.
Add eggs one at a time to the butter and beat well.
Once egg and butter mixture is beaten well,add the mashed bananas and date paste.
Mix well.
Add little by little the flour mixture and cut and fold the mixture.
Once the flour is mixed well, add all the dry fruits and honey and mix well.

Pour the mixture into the Cake tin and sprinkle some oats on top.
Tap the cake tin so that there are no air bubbles.

Bake it for 30 minutes at 200 degrees.
I baked the cake in OTG at 200 degrees for 20 minutes and at 180 for 10 minutes.

Take the Cake from the oven and run a toothpick in the center to check if there is any uncooked cake mixture. If there are any uncooked portion, bake for further 10 minutes.

Cool the cake on a rack and cut it into small pieces. It makes a great Tea time snack.
