This is a very nice bread served with
meals or just as a snack.
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup dark raisins
1 cup chopped dates
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
l 1/2 cups Wondra flour (very fine)
1 cup sugar
Combine nuts, raisins, dates, baking soda,
and butter into a large bowl and mix well.
Add boiling water to that mixture and let
stand for 15 minutes. In a small bowl,
beat the eggs slightly, add vanilla and
set aside. Add the eggs and vanilla to the
mixture in the large bowl, then gradually
add the flour and sugar and beat well.
Pour the batter into round large soup cans,
or you can use 2 loaf pans. Grease which-
ever one you decide to use. If you're
using the cans, fill them half way.
Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 to 50
minutes, depending on your oven.
This is delicious plain, or with cream cheese.
