I used to make this cake with my Mom as a child, she still makes it now and I thought you might like to try too.

1 tablespoon Butter
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Essence
1 teaspoon of Bicarbonate Soda
1 cup Boiling water
1 1/2 cups Self Raising Flour
1/4 lb Dates or a mix of Dates and Sultanas
1 Egg
3/4 cup Sugar
A dash of warm milk

Set the oven to 180C, 350F or Gas Mark 4
Butter and flour a 1lb Loaf tin

Take the stones out of the dates and chop
Pour boiling water in a dish and add the butter and dates (and sultanas if used)
Add the Bicarbonate Soda
Add the egg
Add the rest of the ingredients
Mix well and pour into the loaf tin
Bake for about 45 minutes
Turn out onto a wire tray to cool.
Serve sliced spread with butter as my Mom always has.
