Spiced date & walnut cake
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4. Grease a 900g/2lb loaf tin, and line with greaseproof paper.
Sift together the flour and spice, tipping any bran in the sieve into the bowl. Stir in the dates and walnuts.
Mix the oil, sugar and milk together. Stir evenly into the dry ingredients. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin.
Bake in the oven for 40–45 minutes until firm and golden brown. Turn out the cake, remove the lining paper and leave to cool on a wire rack.
