Ingredients

  • 100 g dried dates - snipped into pieces and covered in boiling water and left to soak
  • 350 g Plain Flour
  • 225 g Sugar - I use soft dark brown for colour and flavour but any would work
  • 100 g Cooking oil - Sunflower or rape/canola
  • Zest one large orange - finely grated
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Pinch salt
  • 60 g golden syrup

Instructions

  • Drain the dates, reserving the soaking water, make the volume of the date water up to 225ml.
  • Place all the ingredients into a bowl or your stand mixer and whizz until you have a smooth golden brown batter.
  • Pour into 8” square pan lined with greaseproof paper (if needed) and bake at GM4/180C for about 25 – 30 mins until risen and a cocktail stick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Cut into squares and dust with icing sugar.
