DIRECTIONS

  • Grease 2 - 8cm round x 17cm long nut roll tins. If you do not have nut roll tins you can use a bar loaf tin and cover it tightly in foil- the result is not as quite as good.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F ).
  • Combine the date, butter, sugar and water in a saucepan. Stir over low heat until the sugar and butter have melted. Bring to boiling point and then remove from the heat.
  • Allow the mixture to cool.
  • Stir the sifted bicarbonate soda, sifted flour, egg and nuts into the cooled date mixture.
  • Spoon the mixture into the greased tins. Replace the lids tightly and bake upright in a moderate oven for 40 minutes.
  • Stand rolls ten minutes before turning out onto wire racks to cool.
  • Serve sliced with butter.
  • Suitable to slice and freeze.
  • As a variation you can use pecan nuts or macadamias in place of the walnuts.
