Date and walnut slices

This is my original recipe.

  • 250g dates
  • 100g walnuts
  • 1 unwaxed lemon
  • 50 ml rum
  • 75 ml water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 100g plain flour

Chop the dates as finely as possible.  Put into a small pan with the rum, the water, and the juice and zest of the lemon.  Heat gently, stirring all the time, until you have a paste similar in consistency to stewed apple.  Allow to cool, then mix with the walnuts.

Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then fold in the flour.  Spread into a 20 cm square tin and bake at 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4 for about 30-40 minutes.
