This old-fashioned favourite is proof that you don’t need to invent new recipes in order to eat healthily. Despite being very low in fat it has a lovely light, moist texture, thanks to the dried dates, and makes a pleasant alternative to a conventional fruited cake. It’s delightfully easy to make, and keeps well too.

This is an easy recipe to follow and it's great for any occasion. It's a very moist loaf cake, ideally cut into slices and buttered. It keeps very well in an airtight container - it usually doesn't last longer than a day before it's all gone!

Very much like a sticky date pudding - nice and moist, and made without eggs.

Treat yourself to a slice of this moist date and walnut cake. Make the sauce if you are serving it warm as a dessert. If it's for your elevenses or a tea-time treat, it tastes just as good sliced and buttered!

This date and banana loaf cake is tried and tested and enjoyed by all of the family. Studded with sweet dates, this cake has natural sweetness from fruit, meaning you can use less sugar.
