Put chopped dates and baking soda in a heat proof glass container, and pour boiling water over top. Allow this to rest for a few minutes while you cream the butter etc. as this will soften the dates before adding later.
Cream your butter, sugar, and eggs in one bowl. In another, combine the salt, flour and baking powder.
Fold the four mixture into the butter mixture.
Now add the date liquid mixture to the combined butter/flour mix and stir.
Pour this sponge cake batter into a greased 9X9 inch pan.
Bake in a preheated oven for 20-30 min.
The topping for this is made easily by combining all of the ingredients and bringing to a light boil in a saucepan.
