Stir well and cool completely. Add the orange juice, egg and butter to the date mixture and mix well. Finally, sift in the dry ingredients and add to the date mixture, mixing well. Spoon into the prepared tin and bake for about 40 minutes or until a testing skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the loaf. Cool slightly in the tin before turning the loaf out on a wire rack to cool completely. Makes a medium loaf.
