Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
  • 200g pitted dates or prunes, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Simmer dates, vanilla, milk and butter together for 5-10 minutes, until soft and the consistency of jam (mixture may appear curdled). Mix eggs and sugar together, fold in date mixture and flour. Pour into a buttered and lined 20cm square tin or 22cm round. Arrange banana slices on top and sprinkle with extra raw sugar. Bake at 180°C for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and firm to the touch. Serve cut into squares.
