1/3 cup soft butter 13/4 cups flour
11/3 cups brown sugar 3 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 cup milk 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg 1/2 lb. dates, stoned and cut in pieces
Put ingredients in a bowl and beat all together for three minutes, using a wooden cake spoon. Bake in a buttered and floured cake pan thirty-five to forty minutes. If directions are followed this makes a most satisfactory cake; but if ingredients are added separately it will not prove a success.
