Method

 
Sprinkle the bicarbonate of soda over the dates and add the boiling water. Set aside to cool. Cream the margarine and sugar together. Add the egg and beat well. Add the date mixture to the butter mixture and mix. Sift the dry ingredients together and add to the butter mixture. Add nuts, mix well and spoon into a well-greased black pot. Bake on a stand over low heat with a few coals on top of the lid as well, for about 30 minutes or until done. Boil all the ingredients for the syrup, except the brandy, together for 5 minutes. Add the brandy and pour the syrup over the cooked tart while still hot. Serve with fresh fruit such as summer berries or orange segments and a scoop of cream. Serves 6-8.
