1. In a bowl put the dates, baking soda, Wattie's Simply Diced Apple, crystallised ginger, ground ginger and boiling water. Stir well.
2. In another bowl, mix the butter and sugar together and then beat in the egg. Gradually blend in the date mixture and sifted flour.
3. Spoon into a greased and floured 25cm x 11cm loaf tin.
4. Bake at 180°C for 1 hour or until the cake is cooked when tested with a skewer. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a cake rack to cool.
Serve sliced with butter or a slice of cheddar cheese for a change.
