Recipe of the Month – Date Cake

I have decided to share my recipe for the date cake that everyone loves so much at my mediations and courses. My dear mother Nell gave this recipe to me many years ago and it was one of her favourites

Date Cake:

1 tablespoon butter
1 cup of dates, chopped
1 teaspoon carb soda
½ cup sugar
1/3 cup walnuts or ginger (optional)
1 cup boiling water
1 ½ cups self raising flour

Pour boiling water over all above ingredients except the flour, allow to cool then add the self raising flour, mix well and pour into a well greased (or paper bake linked) cake tin. Bake in a moderate oven (350 F) for 40 minutes

Bon appétit
