date cake

Date fans love this cake – we iced it with lemon icing and it disappeared within seconds!

 

Ingredients

 

370g dates

500ml water

120g butter

370g or 1 3/4  cups brown sugar

370g or  3 cups plain flour

2 tsp. baking powder

4 eggs, lightly beaten

 

METHOD

Boil the dates, water and butter until you have achieved a jam consistency.  Allow 10    minutes on a medium heat.  Stir from time to time.

Preheat the oven to 180degC.  Put the brown sugar, flour, baking powder and eggs in a bowl.  Add the date mixture.  Mix to combine.  Pour into a prepared square 20cm cake tin.  Bake at 180degC for approximately 55 minutes or until a skewer comes out cleanly.
