Date Loaf Cake

Very much like sticky date pudding – nice and moist, and made without eggs.

Date Loaf Cake


  • 1 cup dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 3/4 cups self-rising flour

3 Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Allow to cool.
