Apple Nut Date Cake

Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/gas mark 5

Use a 900g/2 lb loaf tin.

Grease and line the loaf tin. In a large bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, apple puree, chopped dates and nuts. Mix well. Stir the milk into the mixture until blended. Pour the mixture into the loaf tin.

Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the cake. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 hours or until golden brown. Test with a warm knife. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn on to a wire rack, right side up, to cool and store in an airtight container.
