  • About


  • cup soft butter.
  • 1⅓ cups brown sugar.
  • 2 eggs.
  • ½ cup milk.
  • cups flour.
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder.
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon.
  • ½ teaspoon grated nutmeg.
  • ½ lb. dates stoned and cut in pieces.


Put ingredients in a bowl and beat all together for three minutes. Bake in a 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.
