Date and Walnut Cake

This cake was popular at the last hut opening in October when we provided drinks and cakes. We had a number of requests for the recipe and we don’t like to disappoint. This was included in the Spring 2022 Newsletter.


  • ¼ pint hot water                                            
  • 2 eggs
  • 5oz butter                                                      
  • 9 oz self-raising flour sifted
  • 4oz soft brown sugar                                     
  • 2oz walnuts chopped
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup


Pour the hot water onto the dates and set aside to go cold.

Beat the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Beat in the syrup and the eggs – one at a time. Fold in the flour then add the walnuts. Lastly, add the walnuts and the soaking water. Bake at 180c/350F for 1 hour to 1¼ hours. Cover loosely with foil for the last 30 minutes.

Enjoy your cake!
