Add the oil, sugar and golden syrup, blending well. Cool completely before adding the beaten eggs. Mix well. Sift the remaining ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Make a hollow in the centre and add the date mixture. Mix thoroughly. Turn into the prepared loaf tin and bake for about 1 hour or until a testing skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the loaf. Cool slightly before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve with butter. Makes a medium-sized loaf.
