A really simple slice using a great combination flavour - dates and walnuts


  • 250gm butter or margarine

  • 2 cups brown sugar, lightly packed

  • 2 cups dates, chopped

  • 1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

  • 2.5 cups self-raising flour

  • 2 eggs


  • 1.

    Cream butter and sugar.

  • 2.

    Add eggs, mix or beat thoroughly.

  • 3.

    Add dates and walnuts, mixing thoroughly to evenly distribute through the mix.

  • 4.

    Add flour, mix well.

  • 5.

    Press mixture into a greased rectangular tin, such as a lamington tin.

  • 6.

    Bake at 180C for 25-30 minutes. The centre should be soft like a brownie, but not sloppy - if you insert a knife, it should come out clean but moist.

  • 7.

    Cut into squares while still warm.
