Date & Walnut Cake

Date and Walnut Cake

This is a very rich, sticky cake- easy to make and to be cut into tiny squares and enjoyed.  It goes well with Port Wine.  So raise your glasses and have yourself a merry little Christmas now.
The Recipe:
125 gms butter; 1 cup brown caster sugar; 1 ½ cups flour; 1 tsp baking powder; 2 large eggs; 1 cup chopped dates; 1 cup chopped walnuts.
Mix all ingredients together until well combined.  Do not over mix.  Pour into greased and lined 9 inch pan and bake in a pre heated oven at 150 degrees Celcius for 40 minutes or until skewer inserted into middle of cake comes out clean.   This cake does not keep well.  So finish it within 3 days of baking or store in the refrigerator.
