Queen Elizabeth II cake (1963)

This is one of my Grandma Ella’s recipes.

Pour 1 C. boiling water over 1 cup chopped dates. Add 1 t. soda and let stand until cool.
Mix and add to date mixture:
1 C. sugar
1/4 C. butter
1 beaten egg
1 1/2 C. sifted flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/3 C. chopped nuts
Bake in 350 degree oven for 35 minutes.

5 T. brown sugar
5 T. cream
2 T. butter

Boil 3 minutes, spoon over hot cake and sprinkle with coconut and nuts.
