  • 160 g butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  •  1 cup thickened cream


  1. Preheat oven to 170°C, and grease a square cake tin or china casserole dish. Next, place dates and bicarb soda into a bowl and pour over boiling water. Set aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Beat together sugar and Rich Glen Frantoio olive oil until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, and beat well.  Mash the dates and fold through sugar mixture, along with the mashed banana and flour. Stir until well combined.
  3. Place into prepared cake tin, and bake for 30-40 minutes. Set aside.
  4. To make the sauce, combine all ingredients into a small pot and cook and stir until the sauce boils. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes. 
  5. Turn cake out on to a large serving bowl and poke the cake all over with a skewer. Pour over ½ of the warm caramel sauce. Stand for 10 minutes, cut and serve with another lashing of caramel sauce and a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream! Yum!
