Can You Recommend a Great Recipe for British Date and Walnut Cake?

Q: I’m hoping The Kitchn’s talented readership can help me! My boss is British, born and raised, and although she’s been in the States for more than half her life she understandably misses many of the things she grew up with that don’t exist here.

Her birthday is coming up and I would love to make her favorite dessert, date and walnut cake. I had never heard of it before meeting her and I have no idea where to begin with recipes. I searched but there are predictably thousands and I would prefer one that can come personally recommended. Can you help a poor Yank out?

Editor: Jessica, we haven’t actually made this sort of cake, so we can’t recommend a particular recipe (although this one looks good!). Readers, help us out! Got a good recipe to recommend? What makes a good date and walnut cake?
