Dad's Favourite Date Slice

1 cup chopped dates
1 cup coconut
1 cup self raising flour
1/2 cup sugar
125 g (4oz) butter
1 egg

Add melted butter to sifted flour and other dry ingredients. Mix well. Add lightly beaten egg. Press into greased tin and bake for around 20 minutes in a slow oven. (mum's slow varies - i'd say this should be from experience moderate to slow around 140C - time will depend on the size of the tin)

Cut into fingers when cold.


  1. So simple, yet so delicious :)

  2. I adore dates, I always have a bag of them in the pantry...for porridge, bircher, baking, with chocolate, for sweetening anything. This just sounds like it just uses those beautiful date flavours as the main attraction :)
    I am absolutely going to try this.
