    Date Loaf

    Wanted to do a bit more baking for the trip away...so I decided on Date Loaf and Quartre Quarts (Pound Cake)...

    Date Loaf...

    Grease a loaf tin with butter...cover the base with baking paper and grease the paper...then dust with flour...

    You will need...

    200g dates
    250mls boiling water
    1 tsp baking soda

    Cut the dates in half into a bowl and add the water and baking soda...leave to soak while you prepare the dough...if you should get a little distracted at this time do not worry about the soaking dates...there is no damage if they soak a little longer...

    50g butter
    200g sugar
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    1 egg
    1 cup flour
    1 tsp baking powder

    Beat the sugar into the butter, adding the essence. Beat in the egg, and add the sifted flour and baking powder...add the dates and water...it is a very liquid combination at this point...pour into the loaf tin

    Bake at 180c until a skewer comes out clean...I have added mixed spice to the mix on some occasions but it really does not need it...

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded

    Eeebees there were a bunch of us waiting with eager anticipation last year and we all felt jilted when you were unable to come down. There is plenty of time to bake up a storm. There is even time to send a few samples around the North and South Island. If you need more time (and yes it is September) then there is always Toby's Memorial to cater but that is likely to be far more hungry mouths than Maca's. By the way is the old coot giving you free use of his bach at Kinlock for the week?
