Here's a recipe of a typical date bread or date loaf. It has taken me a while to find a recipe that I like that is moist and the date flavor comes out. Enjoy!
1 cup dates
1 cup boiling water, pour over dates and allowed to stand while fixing rest of cake.
1 teaspoon soda - sprinkled over dates and allow to stand with the water.
1 tablespoon fat (Crisco or vegetable shortening)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup brown or white sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
Cream sugars and fat. Add beaten egg. Add dates with water. Add flour and nuts, stir until all ingredients are moisten well. Put into a well greased and flour bread pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes. Test to make sure it is done with a toothpick. Put in toothpick and see if it comes out clean, not googy.
