Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 150°C.
  2. Grease and flour a loaf pan.
  3. Place dates, water and butter in a saucepan, bring to boil and simmer for about 20 minutes (I like to break down the dates a bit for smoother jam). Let cool.
  4. Pour date mixture into a mixing bowl, add sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  5. Add egg, mix well.
  6. Sift together flour, baking powder and vanilla sugar. Add flour mixture and cream alternately to the mix.
  7. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 75 minutes.
