Sunday Yumminess

Despite the heat up here we haven't really got away from our tradition of a little Sunday yumminess with afternoon tea (or in Mr Provincial's case coffee).

Yesterday I tweaked a friend's Date Loaf recipe and I must say I am pleased with the moist result.  And, it is practically healthy with no sugar in the recipe.  Spread a little butter on a slice for an extra ray of sunshine.

Date Loaf

250g dates, chopped in half
50g butter
1 tsp bi-carbonate of soda
1 1/2 cups hot water
1 3/4 cups self-raising flour
1 egg

Boil first four ingredients for two minutes.  Cool and add flour and egg.  Pour into a loaf tin and bake at 170 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes.


  1. This looks delicious and sounds simple. What a great combination! Thanks for posting the recipe.

  2. Your date loaf looks beautiful! And I love your green teapot.
