I made these for our weekend away we had SUCH a blast! Will post a review of the place we went to soon.
This recipe is in the “Recipes from the Royal Kitchen” supplement that came with the June issue of the Food and Home Magazine, and they are divine!
Sticky Date Bar Ingredients:
250ml / 1 cup Cake Flour
8ml / 1 ½ tsp Royal Baking Powder
2ml / ¼ tsp Salt
5ml / 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
60ml / ¼ cup Light Brown Sugar
60ml / ¼ cup Digestive Bran
100g chopped pitted Dates
50g Pecan Nuts (you can leave these out if you want)
80ml / 1/3 cup Golden Syrup / Honey
80ml / 1/3 cup Milk
Sticky Date Bar Method:
Sift flour, Royal Baking Powder, salt and cinnamon together Add sugar, bran, dates & nuts Add syrup and milk and mix well Press mixture into a greased 20 x 20 cm baking pan and bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 20 – 25 minutes. Leave to cool before cutting into squares.
I added more dates, and I would advise you not to let the date bars cool completely before cutting them into squares.. it was quite a mission! Super easy and delicious!
