  • 60 g (1/2 cup) plain flour

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  • Grease a standard sized loaf tin and set aside.
  • Place the dates into the Thermomix bowl and press Turbo for 5-10 seconds to roughly chop.
  • Add the boiling water and bi-carb soda and mix on 100 degrees, Speed soft, 2 1/2 minutes (watch it carefully as it will bubble up in the bowl).
  • Add the butter and raw sugar and mix for 10 seconds, Speed 6.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Allow to cool slightly.
  • Add the egg and mix on Speed 3 for 5 seconds.

  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix for a further 5 seconds on Speed 7.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf tin and bake for approximately 50 minutes (check after 40 minutes), or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • If the loaf is browning too much, loosely place a sheet of foil over the top and continue baking.
  • Allow to cool for 20 minutes in the tin before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
