Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, mix the pineapple and dates. Cook, stirring until dates soften and the mixture thickens.
  2. Stir in almonds and 1/2 teaspoon of the vanilla extract. Cover and thoroughly chill the mixture.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add eggs and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.
  4. Add flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and salt.
  5. Cover and chill dough for a minimum of 1 hour.
  6. Remove both the dough and dates from the fridge.
  7. Roll the dough between two sheets of parchment until a 18x10 inch rectangle.
  8. Spread the date filling on the dough and roll up like a swiss roll. (Get the good swirl like Mary Barry.)
  9. Cover and chill a minimum of three hours, preferably overnight.
  10. Slice and bake on greaseproof paper at 170 C until golden (about 10 minutes).
  11. Cool on wire rack and store in airtight container.
