Date Cake recipe

As promised here's the recipe for one of the cakes that I made for my last 'Bring  Hadith tea Party'

Date cake Ingredients:

1and 1/2 cup of dates
125g Butter
6 eggs
3 cups of self raising flour
chopped walnuts (optional)

First separate the dates from the date stones then add to the butter in the bowl and mix together until the dates are well coated with the butter. Next add the eggs mixing in two at a time until you have added all six eggs. Last sift in the flour and mix.

Bake in a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper for 30 mins at a temperature of 180 degrees C.
Take out of the oven and cut into squares and allow to cool.
