Date Cake


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


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


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. logo
