Date and Walnut Loaf


  • 1 2/3 cups chopped dates
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 4 x 8-inch loaf pan.

Place all the ingredients except the flour in a saucepan and stir over low heat until the butter is melted. Set aside to cool. Mix in the flour, and then pour the mixture into the prepared pan.

Bake for about 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Serve cut in thick slices.
