Quick Cake

1/3 cup soft butter
13/4 cups flour
11/3 cups brown sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/2 lb. dates, stoned and cut in pieces

Put ingredients in a bowl and beat all together for three minutes, using a wooden cake spoon. Bake in a buttered and floured cake pan thirty-five to forty minutes. If directions are followed this makes a most satisfactory cake; but if ingredients are added separately it will not prove a success.
