My love affair with classic recipes from the early 1900s onwards continues. The simplicity of ingredients and method; and a budget-friendly recipe that’s full of flavour has been a big ‘yes’ from me in my kitchen.

This vegan Caramel Date and Nut slice is no exception. It’s that delicious, I popped into the kitchen and cooked one because just thinking about it as I typed this post made me yearn for one. Try it, you won’t be disappointed.

There are just seven ingredients in this slice, most – if not all, you’re likely already to have in your pantry. Aside from chopping some dates and nuts, it’s mix and pour into the pan before popping in the oven. You’ll be sitting down with a cuppa and a piece of buttered slice in less than 30 minutes. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
