Date Cake

8oz. pitted dates (225g), chopped
6oz. sultanas (175g)
4oz. currants
10oz. Table margarine (275g)
10floz. water (255ml)
14oz. tin condensed milk (400g)
5oz. plain flour
5oz. wholemeal flour
a pinch of salt
3/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tbsp chunky marmalade

Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 3, 325F, (170C)
You will need an 9" (20cm) round cake tin, greased & lined

Place all the fruits in a saucepan, together with the margarine, water and condensed milk and bring to the boil.

Stir frequently to avoid sticking. Simmer the mixture for exactly 3 mins and stir occassionally.

Now transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and let it cool for approximately 30 mins.

While it's cooling, weigh the flours and sift them into a bowl together with the salt and soda.

When the fruit mixture has cooled, stir it into the flour, salt and soda mixture and add a good round tablespoon of marmalade.

Now spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake the cake on the centre shelf of the oven for 21/2 hrs.
Protect the cake from the beginning with a double square sheet of greasproof paper (with a hole in centre, okay mine's not a very good circle! :126: ). This cake does get rather brown!
