For the cake batter:

Step 1:

Powder 3 pieces of cloves and 1 cup of sugar in a blender. Once done, transfer to a large bowl. Next, add 3/4 cup of vegetable oil, 2 eggs, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Whisk until all ingredients are combined well.

Step 2:

Sift 1 cup of flour, 2 tablespoons of baking powder, 1/8 teaspoon of ginger powder, 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon powder right in the mixture to remove lumps. Whisk to combine.

Step 3:

Add the caramel syrup and 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence. Mix until well combined.

Step 4:

In a separate bowl, add 3/4 cup of chopped dates, 1/4 cup of chopped cashews, and 1 tablespoon of plain flour. Mix until they are fully coated with flour, then add to the cake batter with 1 cup of grated carrot. Gently fold the batter to combine everything.

Step 5:

Transfer to a lined and greased cake tin. Place in the oven and bake at 356 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick or skewer comes out clean when inserted in the middle. (To avoid it from browning, place an aluminum foil on top. You can put at 30 minutes of baking.) Once done baking, allow it to cool. Slice and enjoy!
