One of my favorite recipes is this
Date Nut Bread.
It is a heavy dense tea bread packed full of flavor.
I have been making this recipe for 40+ years now. Read over the recipe prior to making it.
You will need:
1 cup chopped dates
1 Tablespoon butter
1 cup boiling water.
Place dates and butter in a small bowl, add boiling water. Cover and cool.
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix these 3 ingredients together and set aside
3/4 cup sugar
Mix together in a large bowl.
Alternate adding flour mixture and date mixture into the egg mixture. Stir well, but do not beat.
Add 1 cup chopped nuts as a final ingredient.
Pour into a greased and floured loag pan. Let set for 20 minutes, then bake. 50 - 60 minutes at 350.
