Bec’s Date Slice

Date slice recipe, Kitchen to Table, Yamba

Our lovely Bec baked a delicious date slice for morning tea this week and we thought we’d share it with you here. It’s quick and easy to put together and is a perfect treat for morning tea. Happy Baking 💚

3/4 cup (125g) brown sugar
125g butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
200g pitted dates, chopped
finely grates zest of 1 orange, optional
1 scant cup (125g) self-raising flour*
1 tsp Herbies ‘Fragrant Sweet Spices’ (optional; available at Kitchen to Table)
2 tbsp raw sugar (optional) to sprinkle on top


  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Grease & line a 20cm square shallow cake pan, or a 24 x 18cm slice pan.
  2. Melt butter and brown sugar together. Cool slightly then add egg and mix well.
  3. Add dates and orange zest and mix in, then add flour and spice (if using) and mix until just combined. If the mixture is a little stiff add a dash of orange juice or milk.
  4. Pour into prepared pan, sprinkle with raw sugar (if using).
  5. Bake for 20-25 mins until golden and firm to the touch.
  6. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool before slicing.


* If you don’t have self-raising flour on hand you can make your own by adding 2 teaspoons of baking powder to 1 cup of flour and sifting them together.
