- 2 cups pitted dates
- 3 cups self rising flour
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup light golden brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

In a small saucepan, place dates and add water just to cover. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Drain dates and place in food processor. Blend until dates have a paste-like consistency.
In a large bowl add all dry ingredients and mix gently with a fork. Add butter, eggs, and warm dates. Beat with hand mixer until all ingredients are thoroughly blended.
Pour ingredients into a greased and lightly floured metal pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until inserted knife or skewer comes out clean.
