750 ml chopped dates
60 ml white sugar
300 ml water
Cook the above in a small pot, stirring constantly until
it begins to thicken (10 or 15 minutes). Allow to cool.
440 ml flour
2.5 ml baking soda
5 ml salt (I usually just throw in a few shakes of the
180 ml butter
250 ml brown sugar (packed)
375 ml quick oats
Cut the flour and sugar into the butter. Add the baking soda,
salt and oats. You should have a crumbly mixture.
Spread half of this mixture on the bottom of a greased baking
dish (24x34 cm). Press it down firmly. Spread the date mixture
evenly on top. Sprinkle the remaining crumble mixture on top.
Bake for 25 - 30 minutes at 175 C.
