Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour


  • 4 oz butter or margarine
  • 4 oz caster sugar
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 8 oz self- raising flour sifted
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 4 oz walnuts roughly chopped
  • 4 oz dates roughly chopped about
  • 3 tablespoons milk


  • Line and grease a 1 kg (2 lb) loaf tin. Cream the butter or margarine and sugar until pale and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs. Fold in the flour, spice, walnuts and dates.
  • Add a little milk to make a dropping consistency.
  • Bake in a moderate oven for about 1 hour. Insert a skewer in the centre of the cake; if it comes out clean the loaf is cooked. Cool slightly before turning out on to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Stand a loaf tin on greaseproof paper big enough to come up 2.5 cm (1 in) above edges of the tin. Draw round base: cut in from corners.
  • Line the greased tin, overlapping the cut corners. Grease well.
