   Cook dates, water and vanilla to soft mass.  Cream margarine, sugar and

   a 9 x 9 greased pan and bake at 325F for 35 minutes.
   While cake is baking, put all the topping ingredients into a small pot and
   bring to a boil.  Boil for 3 minutes.  When cake is baked, remove from
   oven, spread topping on it and place under the broiler to brown.  Watch
   carefully, because it could burn. Helen Peagram, F-Cooking
