DIRECTIONS

  • Combine dates, brown sugar, bicarb soda and water in a pot. Bring to boil, simmer for 1-2 mins (stir a few times) then turn off heat and leave to cool.
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius Grease a 22x 11cm tin (or use baking paper).
  • Add carrot to date mix (I just grate straight into pot) a 1/2 or whole apple is also nice grated in too (I don't wait until date mix is totally cool).
  • Sift flour and spices together and add to mix. (I don't- I just chuck it all into the pot! Saves on dishes).
  • Mix well and spoon into loaf tin. You can add extra water if too dry to mix well.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes Use a skewer to check if middle cooked.
  • Note- if using gluten free flour (not self raising) add 2- 2.5 teaspoons of baking powder + 1 tsp (optional) of guar gum.
