this was just like my nanna used to make. I used a loaf tin as I couldn't find my cylindrical tin but just as nice. I left the egg out as well and didn't notice the difference. I wasn't sure how much vanilla to use as it wasn't listed in the ingredients so used apporx 1/2 teaspoon. This one will stay in the recipe file to be used again and again. thanks

Loved it, tasted delicious. The only downside was, it fell apart when cutting (could be because of use of loaf tin), may have needed a bit more flour to bind. Otherwise, great taste, thank you.

Made this as an after-school snack for my kids, my 12 year old hates dates but ate roughly 1/2 the loaf over the next day or so! It was delicious and I will definitely be making this one again.

Very easy to make and the result was moist and delicious. I forgot to add the egg, but the cake was a success nonetheless.

This turned out perfectly. I filled the tin 7/8 and it is a perfect cylinder. Cut down half the sugar too 👍

Everyone raved about it. Great texture and flavour. I'll definitely be making this one again. I used coconut oil and teaspoon of vanilla as no quantity was given.

This is a brilliant recipe, just like grandma used to make. I used a cylindrical tin & in doing so found there was a little bit of mix left over so I used a mini loaf tin for the remainder. Like others, I found it quite crumbly when I cut it but this was only because my addiction to fresh warm baked stuff got the better of me and I didn't allow it to cool. Allow it to cool completely & it will cut perfectly, as I discovered the next morning. This recipe definately doesn't need more flour to bind it - just have the patience to let it cool completely.
