About this recipe: Once you make these delicious treats, they will become a firm favourite. These cake slices are moist, cinnamon-spiced and dotted with coconut, dates and raisins.
Just made this for the first time.....love it. I'm not a nut fan so substituted the walnuts for dried cranberries which my two and a half year old daughter declared delicious. A brilliant way to use up some of the glut of courgettes from our allotment. - 14 Aug 2014
Really tasty. I made it with only 100g of butter and 150g of sugar and also added apples and spices. Worked so well! - 16 Apr 2013
I am called "THE BAKER" by friends and family....NEVER, NEVER, NEVER have I received so many compliments on, and recipe requests as I have for these delicious bars. I've made them 4 times in 2 weeks ! I used currants because didn't have any dates--worked fine. Also--using quality cinnamon (and adding extra) brought many inquires as to the "special ingredient" in the icing. Thanks for a new favorite !!! - 21 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
