Recipe tested in a 600 watt microwave oven. Spray a 25 x 12 x 8 cm microwaveproof loaf pan with non-stick spray. Line the bottom of the pan with paper towelling. Mix the dates, butter, sugar and water in a large microwaveproof bowl and microwave for 5 minutes on 70 per cent power. Stir after 3 minutes. Add the bicarbonate of soda and cool for about 2 minutes. Add the egg and mix. Sift the self-raising flour and salt together and add to the mixture along with the almonds. Mix lightly until just blended. Turn into the prepared pan and place in the microwave oven on an upturned saucer. Microwave for 8-9 minutes or until done. Leave for about 5 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Remove the paper towelling and sprinkle a little sugar over the crust if desired. Slice and serve with butter. Makes a medium-sized loaf.
