Date Loaf – Recipe

My Mum always used to make Date Loaf to take to people when she was visiting. I used to make it often but had kind of forgotten about till a few weeks back when I was trying to think of an idea to take to friends. I whipped on up and found it was a hit, so it is back on the top of the recipe list again.

1 cup chopped dates
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp butter
1 cup boiling water
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder

Put dates, sugar & soda into bowl
Pour over boiling water
Stir till sugar dissolves
Set aside to cool
Add egg & vanilla
Mix well
Sift in flour & mix
Pour into loaf tin
Bake 1 hour at 160 C
