teaspoon vanilla essence                                                  

10 oz. (283 g) plain flour


5 level tablespoons brown sugar                                              

2 tablespoons butter                                         

2 tablespoons cream or evaporated milk


1. Chop the dates and put into 10 fl. oz. (284 ml) of boiling water and the bicarbonate of soda.  Let stand for the time it takes to prepare and mix the following                                                                       

2. Cream the sugar, butter, egg and vanilla essence                                                                                                     

3. In a fairly large bowl sift the flour, the baking powder and the salt                                                             

4. Add the dry mix to the creamed mix, then add the date mix and the chopped walnuts                                    

5. Turn into a lined, well-oiled 8” (20 cm) round tin, which is 3-4” (7.6-10.1 cm) deep.  It can also be made in a 9” x 12” tin as a tray bake.

7. Topping: melt the ingredients in a saucepan then boil for 3 minutes only. Cool slightly and then  spread out over the cake. Sprinkle with a few chopped nuts

Note: Be careful not to boil this mixture longer than 3 minutes, or it will turn to toffee. The consistency should be like fudge. Cool slightly before pouring over the cake; some may run down the side. Left for an hour or two the topping will have set nicely.
