I just love this loaf. To make it a healthier treat, I sometimes make it with

wholemeal flour and raw sugar.


1 cup dates, chopped

1 cup sugar

25g (1oz) butter

1 tsp baking soda

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1 tsp ground cinnamon or mixed spice


• Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease a loaf tin well.

• Pour 1 cup of boiling water over first four ingredients. Leave to cool.

• Add sifted flour, baking powder, walnuts and spices and mix until combined.

• Pour into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 35-45 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

• Delicious served warm or cold and spread with butter.

Serves: 10

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 35-45 minutes

This turned out so good! Tastes exactly like a cake, my great-grandma, used to bake when I was a child. So happy to have found this recipe and this blog overall. 💗
