  • Thoroughly grease your Bundt tin, making sure you get into all of the nooks and crannies.
  • Add your tablespoon of flour to the Bundt tin and toss around so that the flour covers all of the inside of the tin. Discard any left over flour.
  • Add your chopped dried dates to your just boiled water and stir in your bicarbonate of soda. Set aside.

  • Repeat with the remainder of your eggs.
  • Beat in the remainder of your flour until incorporated.
  • Add 3 balls of your chopped stem ginger and dates plus all of their water and beat gently to incorporated.
  • Pour the batter into your Bundt tin.
  • Bake for around 35 minutes in the centre of your oven or until a skewer comes out clean.
