Very much like sticky date pudding - nice and moist, and made without eggs.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 cup dates, pitted and chopped
- 1 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/4 cup margarine
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 3/4 cups self-rising flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine dates, brown sugar, margarine and boiling water. Let stand 15 minutes. Stir in flour, soda and vanilla. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Allow to cool.
